Here is an article from our friend Paul Gains with some quotes from Jake. His #1 priority is winning but clearly he wants to run fast. He wasn't pleased with his 2:08:26 debut.
“Honestly, I wasn’t pleased with it,” Robertson reveals. “I believed I was in about 2:05 shape. I didn’t even know I had broken the New Zealand record because that didn’t even feature in my thought process. I was thinking about the course record (Wilson Kipsang’s 2:06:13) and that didn’t happen, and I didn’t win the race. I kind of had many emotions and I decided to enjoy that I had finished on the podium and then started thinking about the next one."
