That's 4:56 pace for 15.5 miles for Solinsky. I don't think that's a good result for him. That should be a tempo for him especially if he is running a fall marathon.
that's assuming he's a 2:10 marathoner, which he likely will never be.
he ran 1:16:xx, but it's a hilly course. give him 75:30 ona perfect day, and that's about a 2:12 marathon. to be honest i don't expect him to be any faster than 2:14.
lets talk about the guys that beat him. chipangama has run 2:13 at grandmas. shadrack biwott has run 2:13. landry has run 2:14.
solinsky just got crushed by a few 2:13ish guys, so i'd imagine he's nowhere close to 2:13. he's got a long time to improve though
