Looking at their workouts it was obvious Fauble wasn't what he has been in the past. Smith has been kind of out of it for a while, I was surprised when he ran 2:09 in Arizona, it seemed like a miracle, and today is more what would be expected. And Rory just tries to hammer and seems to not understand you can't do that for 26 miles. In their 16 mile marathon effort workout video he was talking about how it got hard at 13 miles but you've got to just keep pushing through it. That's not good if it's really hard at 13 miles when you're supposed to be doing marathon pace.
