I hope rupp runs faster than Ryan Hall's 1/2 Marathon american record. (I definitely think it's possible)
I just want everyone to realize, like him or not, that Rupp is by far the greatest American distance runner ever.
records plus his olympic medals will make it hard to refute
I see Rupp besting Hall's 2:06 (and maybe his 2:04:58) in a rabbited race. The guy is a stud even if Rojo thinks of Rupp as just some guy that has never broken 2:10.
Until Sunday, I thought of Ward as the best of America's current crop of guys that show up at the US Road Running Circuit races. Now I think of him as this generation's Beardsley. He may eventually go around 2:08.
