Apparently, many people give a $hit about the half-marathon, as evidenced by these boards.
Great race for Hasay - and hope she has a great run at Boston.
Or these boards seem to weigh in heavily on anything connected to the NOP....
Someone mentioned earlier that Des Linden would kill for a faster half marathon time and I think she's more than satisfied with 2 Olympic teams and a runner-up Boston finish but in comparing their PBs the USA T&F website had the following
Also the US all-time lists for the half (although not sure how accurate as they didn't have Flanagan's 67:52...)
Although again with the half not getting the recognition it makes one wonder how many times an athlete is actually training specifically for that distance and that race as I'd guess hardly ever. Linden isn't even close but her marathon best beats Goucher by over 2 minutes (Goucher's = 2:24:52)
