Subject: RE: Pull a "Glenn Randall" (GR)
I definitely understand your perspective.
Had he ran a smart race and ran 2:20 he would have been a top american finisher (and overall finisher for that matter).
I guess it depends on what you care about more. Personally I would have saw the conditions as an opportunity to finish "relatively" higher. Jason Hartmann is a great example of someone that may not be as talented as the top kenyans - he stuck with it and finished 4th OA - no different than Hall in 2011.
I do agree however - running should be fun - and for 99% of us on here , thats all it will ever be. When you are in the Elite corral at the Boston Marathon I would argue things are a touch different.
