    Why is it a meaningless term, because energy efficiency isn't simply interchangeable with velocity? That makes no sense.

    You gotta wonder how fast she could run 5k when she goes out a mere 15 seconds slower than her road personal best of 15:13, then averages 15:59 for the next 7.44 5ks.

    I'm afraid it's hard to get excited about anything Kenyan lately. I actually just don't care. May as well tell me when the price of paper towel is going down in Iceland.
