RE: If That Wasn't The Greatest Marathon Ever Run, What Was
Wanjuri's run at the Olympic still shocks me.
Hard to compare to Mutai's run in NY.
Honestly I really don't know which is better.
Boston was great but 20 MPH sustained wind at their backs makes you wonder what Mutai would have run on this past Sunday if thrown into those same conditions.
I mean Hall ran a 2:04 in Boston. That ought to tell you something. Not like he is a slouch or anything but I don't think he was in the same shape as he was when he ran that 59 minute half in Houston followed by that great run in London.
I think all the comments about non-paced Marathons are spot on. Get rid of the pacers! They make for boring races!
Who knows, after the ruling on the women's WR times they might wipe the board someday on pace aided records for men. Anything is possible as we have seen.
