RE: Allright Letsrun - Who wins, Ryan Hall 2007 or Galen Rupp in 2017
2007 Ryan Hall was younger and faster -- this is undeniable. What Hall did from January 2007 to April 2008 was amazing, and November 2007 was probably peak Ryan Hall. Most of us thought he would've won the actual NYC marathon (held the next day on an easier course, and won with a near identical time) that year.
Still, if it were under warmer conditions, or a close race at the end, I'd give Rupp a really good shot at winning. But November 2007 Ryan Hall would be able to essentially solo a 2:07 or 2:08 on a fast course in good conditions, so him just dropping Rupp wouldn't be out of the question.
