RE: OMG did Mary Keitany just run sub 1:06 half marathon WR?
I apologyze if I was not able to understand that was a sarcastic joke, English is not my language.

However, I could not be surprised if it was a real thought, looking at how many times Letsun posters speak about doping for all the athletes able running fast (sometimes not very much, but fast in their mind).

In any case, I gave the true infos about the situation of Mary, because it's good people can know who is the coach, the organisation she has for her, her projects.

In Letsrun there are a lot of people speaking about HOW an athlete is, WHAT she has to do, WHICH is the best programs, WHICH results she can have in the future, without never having seen the athlete before.

Of course, everybody has the right to give his opinion. But this behavior is very similar to the discussions we have in Italy about our football (soccer), for all the week, in every bar and in television, where every fan knows better than the coach of the team what he has to do, choosing different players (he works with them every way, fans never saw any training sessions, but they know...), changing training system (of course, they professionally know the training systems better than the coach), and supposing what was possible to do IF.....

One thing is to joke, other thing is to try to speak seriously. And, if there is somebody seeming to be serious when joking, unfortunately there are a lot really joking or writing stupid things when want to be serious.
