Ron Daws

I have "Self Made Olympian", a book he wrote, on how he made the US Olympic Team in 68 or 72 I forget, Mexico Olympics.

Here's some results on athlinks, since some races uploaded all results:

I noticed his half marathon PB is a Miami half marathon.. that is probably SO rare, for a race in SFL to be your PB in the IAAF results!

1:03:15 in Miami / 2013:

fast dude! think he owns the CR for the miami half. It's not nearly as fast anymore, I guess it used to have prize money. Some locals hit 1:10 & 1:11's etc. Most winners hit 1:15-1:18 lately.

ROBERT KIPRONO CHERUIYOT



listed at 6'3 154.



https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/kenya/robert-kiprono-cheruiyot-244014

2:05 at Boston.. damn, one of the best times there.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Kiprono_Cheruiyot

his wiki is sick ^^ he's also 6'3.

a "true marathoner", primarily has only raced marathons.



his 2:05:52 @ boston, 4:52/mi:

https://www.athlinks.com/event/20238/results/Event/157007/Results



incredible how his PB's at 10k/half etc, are so slow compared to his best marathons. guy just pushes it hard af.

Quote
Hailing from Bomet in Kenya's Rift Valley Province, Cheruiyot's international debut was at the 2008 Frankfurt Marathon.[1] Since he was not experienced, he had to purchase his own way and turn in a time under 2:14:00 to be reimbursed.[1] He proceeded to surprise everyone, including himself, winning the race with a course record 2:07:21

Gilbert Okari

https://www.runnersworld.com/advanced/a20787011/leading-edge-gilbert-okari/

Quote
Okari, who is just over six feet tall, prefers road races to the track. "With my long legs, I don’t like to go around the track for so many laps," he says. "I like to go in one direction. It is easier on the body and on the mind. When the gun goes off, I am already at the finish."

Quote
Yet even if he never runs another race, Okari has already achieved one great victory. About his mother’s advice to get on with his life, he says, "She now knows that she was wrong."



guy who has the CR @ Beach to Beacon, 27:27, that's who Jake was chasing today.
