Kara is the better marathoner
RE: Shalane is slow!!!
From the lets run homepage:
The women's race was perhaps the craziest one ever in New York, as it was a 20-mile jog and a 10k race. LA Marathon champ Edna Kiplagat, American star Shalane Flanagan and half marathon ace Mary Keitany battled over the final miles, with Kiplagat winning and Flanagan battling back for second in her debut. The top 10 were separated by an amazingly small 1:35.
Facts to note:
"20-mile job and a 10k race"-Shalane is the 10K Olympic bronze medalist so she would be expected to win in a situation like this...so not impressive that she didn't win after jogging and warming up for her signature event.
"The top 10 were seperated by an amazingly small 1:35"...again shows that Shalane was only maginally better only because of her 10K track speed...so why give her props as a marathoner when she jogged, ran a 10K and still couldn't win?
