This guy ran a ton of tiny races, 5ks/10ks in upstate NY that offer bonus money for course records. In the past you could show up year after year at a few of these races and win in 15:20/30 then come back the following year and run just hard enough, say 15:18/19, just enough to keep cashing in on the bonus money year after year. Well he came along to one race and blew out a 14:20 when the next guy was close to 16:00. He did something similar at another 10k race, running flat out putting the record out of sight, and essentially forcing himself to have to run that much harder the following year to get the bonus money again. Some of the times he is running now are not even comparable to when he was at peak form in the early 2000's. He could compete with the John Korir's and Kahlid Kannouchi types. I think he had low 27 10k track speed. He was a super talent without drugs.
