You're confusing your love of what Ritz did last year post-London with what's the actual norm up top in the marathon. And Ritz hasn't even gone sub-2:10 in the marathon, so he has yet to really show proof of anything at all with regard to the marathon.
These are all great marathoners who you mention, but no one runner in the USA is receiving as much attention as Mr. Ryan Hall.
I think that Mr. Hall needs to just go train alone with his coach somewhere and get away from everything.
Yeah, I saw that solipsistic suggestion in an earlier post.
