    New York and London marathons seem to be embraced by their cities as major events within the city's calendar. I think Boston may be similar. This doesn't appear to be the case for Chicago and Paris, for example. I haven't seen enough of Berlin to judge which category that falls in.

    Unfortunately, she didn't get the reception befitting of such a monumental accomplishment. You got the feel of second-rate event watching NBC Gold. Hopefully, she'll get as much coverage in the mainstream media as Kipchoge. Will ESPN feature a marathoner in its "Play of the Day" two days in a row?

    Of course, the pacing wasn't nearly as contrived as Kipchoge's, but it should be noted that she ran much of the race behind two male pace-makers, and her final time was nearly three minutes faster than the recognized record for an all-women's race (2:17:01 by Mary Keitany).

    Edited to correct typos.

    Tape delayed NBC coverage on NBCSN (8am-11am PT) with Paul Swangard providing lead commentary.

    2:17 by Keitany? Don't think running against men should downgrade Kosgei's performance; will be curious to see if the next few days produces well over a hundred comments on this thread, as with the 1:59 one. Agree with LU's comment, that this is an easy pick for POY.

    Not surprised I have a feeling their mental state now must be somewhat less than great....their coach has been banned, their team eliminated....also Mo in 8th...the fallout continues...
