Its the risk you run when you don't have pacers.
Fun to watch because puskedra was in the lead group.
However a bit unfair to the top kenyans. In a normal race they would have gotten the price money plus some nice time bonuses.
If i were a kenyan elite, i would sue the organizers.
I agree. Boston 2014 was great to watch for the same reason; it was a race, and Meb ran the best race.

I thought it was better.
It was a race not a time trial, which I found more exiting. You had Luke P. in the lead group, an early break, surges, makes the race more exiting. In other races you just have a bunch of people holding on for dear life as the pacers go out in WR pace, the race doesn't start until 30K in.
