You know nothing about running. Weather was the key to the performances. Prior CRs were set in nastier hot weather.

The answer should have been, "When some dude no one has ever heard (the 2nd place finisher) of us also breaks a 'famous course record', then you realize the CR wasn't all that good to begin with."

Before Walmsley's impressive CR from last year (14;30) that was in a very hot year, the prior CR (by Timmy Olson, 14:46) was set in 2012, a very cool year (cooler than this year). 2012 also saw Ellie Greenwood set the still-standing womens CR.
