I hear Matt Llano is racing?
Ran high 2:12 blowing up a bit at CIM, solo for almost the whole race.
Over or under 2:12:00 in Tokyo?
Top American (probably, who else is going)?
Are there any notable Americans running Tokyo?

It seems like Suguru Osako will go out with the leaders. If they start at the planned 61:45 halfway split, wouldn't it be too much of an asking for him? Either he has a huge breakthrough or an epic blow-up.
It would be more sensible to open in 63:15 with Yuki Sato's group and run a big negative split if he's in such a good shape.
