    The feed is for a few and many at LetsRun seem to have had difficulty getting it to work ($4, but may have had to register multiple times).

    Anyone watching and able to supply commentary?

    Kim Smith went immediately and has a 30 second lead at 7 miles but is only at 2:22 pace.

    Men going a little more aggressively -- 2:04-high.

    Coverage of women's Marathon is nil in 1st hour since Kim Smith has such a gigantic lead. No mention of all the other runners ... may have to wait until last 4-5 miles of race. Pulling for Des Davilla to to be top USA runner but she fell back a bit at opening.

    Great coverage of the "Push Rim Race" (aka Wheelchair competition) if you tuned in for that competition!!

    They have a pretty good tail wind for this race.

    Can't find any coverage so to clarify, is Ryan Hall out on his own at WR pace or is he running with a group who are all together at this very fast pace?

    From what I gather Kim Smith has cramped (or picked up an injury and she's been passed by the chasers, including Kiplagat, Kilel with Davila not far back.

    I think Ryan Hall has dropped away from the leading pack in the men's race. 1:13:15 at 25k which is still WR pace.
