RE: Jake Robertson makes his marathon pick. #2 will be Toronto on October 21!
Was hoping he'd do Chicago and match-up with Galen and Mo. Maybe Chicago was strapped for cash after paying the folks they've announced so far. Jake could likely pull a similar appearance fee to a lot of domestic stars because he's a fast white dude and people know his story or could care about it. Toronto might have had a faster winning time last year but the elite field was still much stronger in Chicago on paper. Rupp beat some better runners to win in 2:09 vs the 2:06-high in Toronto. Surprised with the choice given that Berlin, Chicago, NYC, and Amsterdam are all stronger races, IMO.
He will be the main attraction in Toronto and should be in a good race to go for the win & 2:06.
