Hall's injuries are preventing him from training enough and he's out of New Yorl:
YOU ARE 100% CORRECT. Go to someone who will look at long term development.
Dear Ry Guy,
You were doing a good job coasting on the base you built while training for many years under a human coach. That base has eroded and you are now suffering from being over trained and under developed. Please, go back to a human coach and rebuild your base properly. Then, begin to focus on training to race again. Perhaps aim for Rio? Stop playing games and start training to win if you want to excel on a world stage again.
You have a lifetime to live your religion. You only have a limited time to excel as an athlete.
Not a chance ;=)
...and there goes the only 2:04 Marathoner in the entry field.
No chance. London doesn't pay him enough. Hall can only get decent entry money in US Marathons and the only ones willing to waste money on him are NYRR and BAA. He will run in Boston.

Smart move by Hall, he shouldn't have planned so quickly on a marathon after the Olympics. He should do the London Marathon in 2013 in my opinion.
You think 2:04 is beneath his real abilities?

1. If he ran 10k's, they would be slow and it would hurt his earning potentials.

He has lost all of his speed, wouldn't it be good for him to go back and spend a year focusing on the World Half Marathon championships or something in that nature and train for the 10k at the US championships? [..] As we have seen Geb has gone back to the track multiple times and then go out and run a great marathon.
