Rupp, what happened with the 2:06 that you were going to go after? You said that you were going to push aggressively for!
trash race. trash time. The women have way more balls than the men! ...and took to it immediately!
Rupp is still a 2:09 guy.
I thought it was an exciting finish. You realize last year was won in 2:11:23?!
If the pace had started hard like the women's, i'm sure Galen would have gone with it. Why would he solo into Chicago winds and risk blowing up.
He ran a big neg split (very few did), he set a PB, he finished very strong and he won a WMM race. Any runner or coach would be thrilled with that.
