I am perfectly Ok with the Rudin family presenting trophies and whatnot. It sounds like from my 5 second Google effort that they have poured a lot of money into this race over the years. Kudos to them and thank you Rudins!
Good discussion. As a complete amateur runner myself but an avid fan I am reminded of the 1500m in the Olympics: often a slow time but very tactical.

Um, ever hear of Jordan Hasay?
On the men's side we have ... oh, wait a minute .... we have .... dang.
We have Galen MF Rupp literally the chosen one of US marathoning.
It's not new to shift finishers 4+ over to another side of the finish to set up for an awards ceremony. They have been doing it at the Boston Marathon for many years.

Nice shot of Kawauchi in his usual histrionics not looking at Meb when the veteran congratulates him.
Not true. Kawauchi is class act. You, however, are a dolt as you like to call others.
What's a salaad? Same as a salaaad? Trying to imposter the original saladbar?
I apologize if this has already been discussed, as I didn't have time to read through 20 pages of postings.
Based on the finishing times to this year's NYC Marathon, do they not have pace-setters (like the way that Chicago has gone)?
