    I was being mostly facetious with that "count me as another fan" phrase, of course. I don't doubt there are few true fans of watching an entire 10,000m race on the track left anymore. Plus, it is a...

    Count me as another fan of watching the paint dry. In a fast race, I like observing the progressive attrition lap by lap, and seeing people start to suffer as the field gradually goes single file,...

    Presumably Gidey is sponsored by Nike, but I couldn't find anything specifically confirming that on the interwebs. In her world-best 15K she was wearing the same new pink Nikes (the Next% or whatever...

    Gidey's track 5K PB is actually 14:23.14 from 2018 (Rabat Diamond League), though one suspects at this point she (or her shoes ) would be capable of significantly faster. So whether it be 14:23 or...

    Huge number of Cain photos, most from the early years of her career. Hope she can get back on track and that there will be many more to come...

    I've become converted to the same opinion after previously thinking a few years ago that the 2:00 barrier in a conventional, sanctioned race was just too far off to be broken until years and years...

    Anybody have information yet on Kipyegon's condition? She started limping immediately after crossing the finish line, and in a later shot was being supported by a teammate to take weight off her leg...
  8. Playing devil's advocate to my post just above,...

    Playing devil's advocate to my post just above, Klosterhalfen's kick is much better this year. She may have felt with Obiri at less than her full powers from mid-season on, especially given Obiri's...

    Hmm, I guess my reaction was different than most here. When it became clear Klosterhalfen was not going to push the pace early, or failing that, at least put the hammer down from 1600m or farther...

    I wonder if Gidey may eventually follow in Ayana's shoes. She was the only one in the race who showed any true initiative in that kind of vein, and the spine to back it up and take the race by the...

    Was perusing the splits for the top 4, and interested to see Tsegay, better known for her front-running, with a faster final lap than Houlihan and everyone else save Hassan and Kipyegon:


    Hassan:...

    Really bold, gutsy and impressive tactical move and execution by Gidey in blowing the race open with 1500m to go. She didn't falter a bit. Very even pace from the time she put in her initial...

    I believe these are the slowest of the marathon predictions here yet, but wonder if even they may be optimistic. Was looking at exercise physiologist and coach Tom Schwartz's Heat Index and Running...
