Here is a link to your boring beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist website:
Ha ha ha
look at the video. i just checked it out because i realized i've never seen it.
To watch someone hold that pace for 13.1 is incredible.

Tadese doesn't have enough speed but he is very very strong (despite his bad marathons) guy
Don't forget that he is a 26:37 10000m guy while holding "only" a 12:59 5000m PR
That's amazing endurance and he was able to replicate that for the Half Marathon
He's also mastered the HM distance for many years before setting his first WR and then he made it better
we all agree Wanjiru had enough talent to be a Marathon WR contender, at least a 2h03 Marathoner, and yet a prime Wanjiru produced a 58:33 so 10s slower
I will say that Tadese was the athlete than - when at his prime - could hold the sub2h pace for longer (maybe past 30km)
He is known as the most economical athlete ever
Bekele could challenge that WR that's for sure, but I doubt he would run under 58
