Yuot was probably working incredibly hard on Sunday, given his effort on a difficult course the day before, but 2:25 is practically a fun-run for a fellow of his caliber. Besides, I have heard that Philly was a bueatifully orchestrated wreck of an event held in one of America's finest, most historically alluring and violent piss-hole megaslums.
Racing a marathon the day after a national XC championship is obviously stupid, but taking into account the easy cash, the fact that the marathon was in Yuot's back yard, and the expiration of his collegiate eligibility, it was unquestionably a savvy move. I can't help but praise this humble gentleman even though I'd like to rip the numb shit to hell and back on message boards, and I wish he were an American even though imports are never genuine citizens no matter what the INS paperwork says.
Anyone else think this is Kevin Beck?
