What a week.
The first Japanese Olympic marathon trials are in the books and Geoffrey Kamworor broke the world record and nearly went 57 minutes in the half marathon (58:01), and the World Championships are less than 10 days away.
We break down the action on the roads, off the track, and have a running term of the week, training tip of the week, and a thread of the week.
