I would love to see that race.
I think the way Hall would win is if he was at his peak or near it and dropped Rupp in the last miles. I don't know that a "peak Hall" would be capable of that because I don't think we have seen Rupp's best time yet. But I agree with those who think that if they were to hang together Rupp would likely win. And we are talking about Hall on a very good to great day. I think Rupp is more consistent and that says something.
I am a Hall fan - it was so exciting to see those times he ran back in 2007. And his passion for the sport and the distance was inspiring. I like seeing Rupp doing well and everything but when he talks about the training for the marathon being boring it just doesn't make me like him more. I'm a sucker, I want to see the guy who loves it win.

Agreed. Hall is more passionate and hard-working, but Rupp just has more talent, however despicable he is.
