RE: Are we witnessing the death of the marathon?
Being white didn't hurt them. Being a black African does. And thats the realities of life.

Very, very few people in middle class America has any understanding or appreciation of where the Africans come from and how hard they work to make it to the levels they do.

Do you really think Kimmeto walked off his farm and jogged a few miles and won Chicago? You think he didn't train as hard as Mosop or Kitwara or Hall or Ritz? Then whats the problem?

I'm thrilled he won, because hes a fantastic runner. Period.
