    Jepkosgei (2:22:38) and Kamwowor (2:08:13) were mighty strong looking!

    Yes they were. Jared Ward looked good in 6th (2:10:45).

    And Abdi 9th in 2:11:34! Amazing!

    I think he was referring to the first mile in Kamworor's half marathon WR. Kitata fronted the first mile this morning, mostly up the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, in around 5 minutes.

    The reference on the broadcast was to the 2016 half marathon championship in Copenhagen when Kamworor fell at the start and was with the leaders after about 600 meters.

    Abdi set a US masters record it appears.

    This should be M40 American record.

    DNF for Sara Hall. Wondering why she would run Berlin Marathon (fantastic 2:22), a 10-mile race the next week (USA Champs I think, she also won), then NYC a month later. She's obviously been in the shape of her life this fall, but that would seem to be overkill. I assume she'll be going for the Trials in February...

    Hall tweet:

    Very bummed to not be able to finish today at @nycmarathon
    Committed to my plan as long as I could, but had some stomach illness yesterday and today that left me feeling too weak & wobbly to keep going.
