He is aparently going to try to qualify for the US Olympic Trials marathon in February. He will move up to the half soon and try to run a qualifying time. I hear he lost a bet to Tyler Mulder, that said that he'd have to run the marathon if he lost the bet, which he did. I look forward to watching him run the trials in february. He has a legitimate shot at making the Olympic marathon. I hear in training he has run 2:00 for a 26.1 mile long run. That translates to about a 2:09:11 marathon. If he can run a time like that, he should be good for coming top 3, according to the 2012 trials results. I wonder if he will be shaving his beard/hair, to reduce wind resistance. I calculated that he can run 2.5634 minutes faster if he cuts 3 inches off his beard/hair. That would mean that he can get close to the American Record in the marathon. It will indeed be an exciting race to watch!
