    I really hope, for his own legacy, that he breaks 2 in a legit marathon, VF4s or no VF4s. I don't have a problem with the shoes, but the pacing lights and circle of pacers around him - who are not...

    That's the bottom line. He is not a 'normal' reservist, so I'm sure he's got a very 'flexible' (wink, wink) service schedule. He owes the USAR 38 days a year, and it may all come when the season is...

    There are historical USA lists? I've seen that there are World lists (albeit unavailable for purchase), but not USA ones. Who might have them (I've got extra grandkids available for trade)?

    OK, I'll go look, but isn't it a little 'concerning', esp. to a stat guy like yourself, that we don't have definitive (as much as they can be) year lists going back to at least back to the 30s,, when...

    I understand his point, but . . . of course it's still just a shoe. There's an ergonomic limit to how much 'platform' a shoe can have before it's counter-productive. 37mm is an inch and a half, which...

    So the answer is 'no' for historical USA lists?

    Taking a year off for the OLYMPICS perhaps?
    I actually think it would be a good idea to stay in school and take a lighter load, so his whole life isn't PV.

    Mondo, as we already know, is a freak, and blows through poles that he shouldn't be able to get on. I hope/expect for that to continue for at least 3 more years, when he will be well about 6.16.

    US yearly lists before 1957?

    I see US year lists for 1953 and 1955 in T&FN / TN , but no others before 1957. Where would I find them?

    Or world lists before 1950?

    They must exist, yes?
