Half marathon record relevant?! To what? The 1/2 marathon championships?! Ok... I agree it's an amazing time but sadly not an important event. Hall's 2:06 is his best race. Ever.
The 2:05 (2:04:58) he ran at Boston wasn't legal either.
I don't get what you're talking about

Ahh, but Rupp has Olympic medals and American records Hall will never have...
Hall, no contest. He had guts that Galen will never have.
Hall has the American record in the half and, but for a late career nationality change, the marathon. Those seem pretty relevant to the discussion.
