obviously not in the front
Is Boston paying Hall a rabbit's fee?

Ryan has just turned into the torpedo's path.
why no american women?
mary akor and heidi westover in 2nd pack.
How big is the lead pack this early in the race?
Did I just see hall give five to a spectator?
Hall looks like a badass leading all them Kenyans.
3-1-0 is not right

6 29:05 4;50 Hall with Merga training
Nah, Merga doesn't train, he said he's had too many family issues.
Cheing the Masters runners. 47-year old Reuben Chesang hit 10km at 30:09 a 2:07 pace. He ran 2:15:24 at Twin Cities for 6th and really only lost contact with the leaders when he went back for water at 22M.
Here are the top 10k splits
The leaders are basically 30:08 which is 2:07:30 pace. The pack is still very large.
Other top American men include:
Jason Lehmkuhle, Antonio Vega and Josh Rohatinsky. They are running together and hit 10k at 30:29 which is 208:49 pace.
Farther behing that former Ivy Leaguers Lucas Meyer and Sage Canaday (Hansons-Brooks for Sage) have hit 10k in 32:46 which is 2:18:25 pace.
maybe HE is!
They cut away just as some others took the lead from Hall.
can you name some of the lead pack, besides Hall, Meb and Merga?
