nice effort too bad it was missed
he's in great shape this early. he has a shot at breaking 8 and 13 this year.
Not bad for a 43 year old hockey player. Cutting the mullett must have streamlined him.
A few questions/ponderances:
1. Anyone know what spikes he was wearing for that race? I saw one was red/pink and the other black I think. Just steepled in the new Mamba 3's today & I potentially hate them, thinking I'll just get another pair of Mamba 2's even though they only last 30ish miles.
2. What the commentator said about how you're not supposed to do a lot of steeples since it wears on your legs body:
a. Has Jager been more cautious with that than others since he can tend to be fairly injury prone?
c. Doesn't Kemboi steeple fairly often? And hasn't he been, for the most part, really really good over the last 10+ years?
b. Why doesn't Jager go after it more on the Diamond League circuit? Not that he could necessarily win the Diamond race but it'd be cool to see him try to contend for it.

Kemboi races more than most steeplers, but I think the most steeple races in a career probably would be Paul Koech.
Kemboi is without hesitation or debate the greatest steepler of all time. He won his first global medal (silver) at the 2003 world championships. He also has the last three consecutive world championship golds. And Olympics golds in 2012 and 2004.
Guess it's true what they say: A Rolling Stone gathers no moss (and runs pretty fast, too). Great run, Mick!
He was wearing the new BTC Vics that are on nike.com.
