That was nice. I don't really have a problem with sit and kick on a fundamental level. If you're the best kicker, it is the best strategy.
However, it gets old when nobody at all in the field tries anything else or wants to run fast. Muir had an excellent run today, and it was satisfying to see the field getting taken to task for being arrogant and lazy.
Given that the field was willing to let as legitmate of a contender as Souleiman get away in the mens race today...I think there are some more wins to be had by following to the pacer until athletes start to remember you can't just spot people 5, 10, or 15 seconds.
