    I like Craig Masback, but it's a huge conflict of interest to have him in the booth as a Nike employee. It greatly limits discussion of the biggest story in American track and field.

    I think they would pretty certainly have to be faster than the CR at 4000, as the last 1000 was run in 2:24, and the last 800 in 1:53 (Kipchoge might have been slightly faster).

    Honestly, I don't care if it is rabbited illegally. If Eliud Kipchoge can run for 26.2 miles at 4:35 per, it is incredible and worth celebrating.
