    I would assume that anybody who is interested in people with actual expertise in the field have to say over outside-looking-in opinion care.

    We know the shoe is faster ....he is not telling me anything new...the argument is whether that is some horrible new development....

    And Sketchers came up with their own version for Jared Ward....

    Again I'm at a lost at all this animosity over a sub 2 hour time over a completely arbitrary distance in the first place...just think if the 1908 marathon had been 40 kilometers 2 hours would have been broken ages ago. Queen Victoria is the one at fault.

    Queen Victoria had absolutely nothing to do with it. At the time of the 1908 marathon, she had been dead for seven year.
