    The weather seems to be favorable.

    Brigid Kosgei (KEN) ran first 5km in 15:28 (2:10:32 pace); Ababel Yeshaneh (ETH) 15:36 (2:11:37 pace); Geleta Burka (ETH) 16:03 (a mere 2:15:24 pace).

    Jordan Hasay had a 5km split of 22:20. Not seeing anything further, so must be DNF.

    Kosgei ran her 2nd & 3rd 5kms at about 16 min each, so was on 2:13:25 pace at 15km.

    The only sound on NBC Sports Gold is from the course in Chcicago. No studio or other commentary. I wonder if that's deliberate. I doubt it.

    Kosgei 1:06:59 half. After the very fast opening 5km, each subsequent 5km ~16 minutes.

    I've found a live stream, with commentary.

    Without commentary I find the NBC Gold marathon broadcast close to worthless. And the regular NBC broadcast here doesn't start until the race is actually over.

    Thanks for the link. If it was the same video as the NBC Gold it would be great - I could listen through the laptop while watching the TV. But it's not the same video, so I'd have to dedicate my laptop to the broadcast, which I don't want to do. Pain in the ass overall . . .

    Kosgei' 5km splits, after the opening 15:28 , are (I think) - 16:00, 15:58, 16:01, 16:06. Still slightly over a minute ahead of WR pace at 25km.
