    Here's a thought: Will Dez sneak in for a top-10 world ranking after her 6th-place finish, to go with her Boston win in the monsoon? Or will the results of other finishers and winners in other big marathons be too much for her to overcome?

    The race website has the first half in 1:15:50.

    not to disparage that great Boston run in any way, but her competition wasn't all that strong.

    How would we know? If New York City holds a marathon and ESPN doesn't show it, did it actually happen?

    They had Matthew Centrowitz and Paula Radcliffe following the lead pack(s). While Radcliffe has some seasoning as a reporter/announcer, sticking someone obviously green out by himself with seemingly no seasoned help is just setting that part of the broadcast (which I find particularly worthless in most cases anyway) back and it showed.

    I love Lagat. Absolute nightmare day, far off his stated goal of Meb's record, barely able to walk, yet he still came up smiling, optimistic about a better next time, giving props to other athletes and generally being his usual upbeat self.

    I didn't watch the whole telecast. As others have noticed, the first hour or so was difficult to sit through. Almost no meaningful content and too many commercials. A few things were said on the telecast that were meaningless or just plain wrong, but the line I couldn't believe I heard right was in the interview with the winner of the women's wheel chair race. It seems that in the past year or so, she's won several big races. The interviewer said to her "you're on a roll."
