Lagat, a40, ran 13:14.97, and was not a factor for the win on the final lap. However, he was pleased with his 5000m opener and said he just needs a little more speed, noting last year he opened with a 13:31 at Pre.
Lagat also talked about his 10,000m on the roads a couple of weeks ago where he tied the all time american record. He said he definitely will do another 10k on the roads.
