Keep in mind, a week or two after halls 2:04.58 hall was running the mile road championships... A month after that he was running the Boulder Boulder 10k. Now granted that would had been great but where was the post marathon recovery?!?
Good point. I think he chased the runners high. He had this idea that God was running through him or some such tosh. Chasing that high probably caused more of the low. How much this was part of what made him great and what made him also fail is worth debating.
