Yeah, but Geoffrey Mutai doesn't really seem like the force he was a couple of years ago.
? He set a PR in the half back in February (58:58) and a few days ago he was only 8s off his PR at the Udine HM with a 59:06. If he's running that fast off of marathon training, watch out![/quote]
And in between he DNF'd in London. The fast half doesn't necessarily mean guaranteed success in the marathon.
