RE: If That Wasn't The Greatest Marathon Ever Run, What Was
Quote: Sammy sat back a number of times after his some of his surges. Sammy eventually killed everyone but he did not lead from the gun.

Quote: This is what some people forget. Sammy didn´t run at an even pace. It almost looked like he was out on a fartlek workout.

What was beautiful about that race was how Sammy just seemed to be in a zone and oblivious to the rest of the world. It was like the other runners were not there and he was running against himself. It reminded me a lot of Joanie Samuelsons race in the 1984 Olympics. The both looked like they were off by themselves on a hard training run. It's sad that he is not part of this new era in marathoning. Watching him and Mutai race would be magic.
