RE: Hasay is BACK baby!!! 68:40 half-marathon debut in subpar conditions, #2 American debut ever!!
Personally, I think the half-marathon should be a premier event, because pro runners can run more of them in a career with less damage than marathons. Also, men have the sub-1 hour mark, and women have the sub-1:10 mark to target, which the public can relate to the sub-4 mile and sub-4:10 mile.
It's a healthier distance than the marathon.
The only thing holding back the "Half" is its name.[/quote]
I completely agree. And well said, especially your last line. I so wish there had been as many halfs in my running days as there are now. And perhaps easier for non-runners to watch and more likely to be televised if we made them premier as you suggest.
