RE: Are we witnessing the death of the marathon?
The sport is dying in the US. When yet another unknown Kenyan wins a major marathon it does nothing to inspire those or interest Americans. If anything it does the opposite. When a Frank Shorter or Bill Rodgers wins it makes you want to go out and run a 20 mile tempo because in the back of your mind your thinking, "maybe, just maybe, I can do this too". When a Kenyan wins you think, "well what the hell's the point, I'm from the wrong country. I could run 150 miles a week for years and year and still not come within a mile of elites".
