In just her second marathon race ( Boston does not count), she PRd by 2 mins, running 2:26 to finish fourth.
This is a woman who is still racing the track and doing shorter distance road races. I think after today, her focus on the marathon will be even greater.
She def has sub 2:20 ability, easily.
Keep in mind Sara Hall DNF'd in her marathon race. Cragg and Hasay were injured.
So a damn impressive time by Molly!
What? She just got owned by a 37-year-old. And why doesn't Boston count? A race is a race, regardless of conditions.
Anyway, she isn't built for the marathon, way too big for that distance. I second the guy who said she should go back to the 10k for Tokyo.
This is just flat out wrong.
Boston does not count because most of the elite field ran like crap or dnf’d
Shalane is more experienced at the marathon. Molly has only been running the marathon for a year!
You really sound uninformed.
This woman just PR’d by 2 mins on a hilly course, destroyed all but 2 African runners, but is not build for the marathon?
