    Callum Hawkins has reportedly been training for the Qatar heat by running in a shed heated up to 39C. It seems to be paying off, as he's hanging on to a place in the top 10.

    Hawkins caught up with the leading group and even led for a while, but didn't have enough left for the finish. Desisa-Geremew-Kipruto in the podium, as Hawkins repeats his 4th pace from two years ago.

    Seems the conditions today aren't quite as punishing as previous days, "only" 29°C and humidity somewhat lower.
    They must have been better, with a 2:10:40 for the winner, a negative split and the top dozen within 2 minutes.

    So, with Desisa winning in a respectable 2:10:40 in a run through hell, who ranks #1? Does he have a respectable outcome in another marathon this year, or did Bekele slam the door shut with his Berlin 2:01:40?

    He is supposed to run NY in four weeks time, who knows if he will start.

    Just a thought, having seen Tadese (who's running twice what he usually specializes in) blow a tire during the race: Are there still 20K road races left around the world, or have they all become half-marathon races?

    I missed the beginning on television. Who were the announcers? I thought they were pretty good.

    The woman was probably the retired British marathoner Yamaguichi (spelling?) because her references to races and questions about going out too hard and some times cited seem to fit.

    You're perhaps forgetting Kipchoge, who wins over a very tough field in London.
