He wasn't even in Berlin. He gave up his spot over a month ago. Ed Torres took his spot and didn't even start the race. Justin Young was a DNF in Berlin.
Well here's some good news from Justin Young:
"Now I have Berlin approaching. It’s unlikely to be cold. It’s a flat course. Training has been going well. Very well. The last few weeks have been challenging: 20 mile run in the morning, followed by a 4 mile tempo in the evening. 12 mile tempo in 5:04 per mile, in some serious heat. 35×400 averaging 68’s, off 1 minute rest. Good quality. High volume. With the knowledge that I have earned, the fire I have walked through in the first 3 marathons, perhaps this could be a breakthrough – or perhaps it will be too windy or too tactical…Who really knows? It’s the marathon…"
Justin, you broke my heart, brother.
Sorry, was talking about Justin, not Cabada.
agree with this poster wrote:
Hurt? More like overtrained. I've trained and raced through fractured bones, torn muscles, and passed out to finish and run respectable marathon times (including the OTs). I'd be damned to put in that kind of work and get that kind of opportunity, only to DNF.
Young has never DNF'd at any of his marathons until today. But you must be a badass. How many have you run? And what respectable times are we talking? should have you been in Berlin? And by "bad" I mean "jack."
