RE: Allright Letsrun - Who wins, Ryan Hall 2007 or Galen Rupp in 2017

So your point is that Hall was able to run 2:06 on the same day that others were able to run 2:06? I would think that is evidence that there were favorable conditions more than any indication of Hall's fitness.

But I would agree that calling Kimetto 2:02 guy in this year's Chicago is a joke.


My point is just that Rupp hasn't beaten a guy who has run a fast marathon.
He couldn't beat a 2:08 or a 2:09 performance when it mattered in his first two marathons, so I don't know why it's such a given that he'd beat Hall if he ran a 2:07.

But totally agree about the conditions part. Hall ran in some nice, cool, fast races. Would like to see if Rupp could do the same.
