RE: If That Wasn't The Greatest Marathon Ever Run, What Was

i'd be surprised anyone "intelligent" considered that run changing peoples' thoughts on how the M shoud be run

most back then considered the best way to run it is even pace, with even 1/2s

surprise, surprise, that's how most consider it shoud be run today - look at makau's wr splits

jones ?

he ran a dumb race with split of 61'43 : 2"'03'26 pace

simply put, he was likely in mid/high 2"06 shape that day & shouda run accordingly with a low/mid 63 split & he wouda got his mid/high 2"06
