    I once saw some footage of Delany running a leg of the mile relay at the Penn Relays. He ran exactly the same way, only a little faster. I wish I could find it.

    It's a shame that they didn't have another two horses when the Borlee twins were in their prime.

    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.

    There's nothing arguable about the DUP's status as the most stubborn political group in the British Isles. Ironically, they got more stubborn when they pushed Ian Paisley aside.
