KIPSANG & KEITANY are my picks. both monsters.
Title: Re: The Misc Running News Thread
Post by: adarqui on November 05, 2017, 11:55:28 am
Shalane Flanagan just shocked the marathon world .. I mean she finished #2 in NY in 2010 or so, but hasn't competed in one for quite some time.. And she just beat Keitany impressively.

Incredible.

That's two major marathons won by Americans in a row.

The men's race is going strong. Kipsang/Kamworor/Desisa and one other battling it out.
Title: Re: The Misc Running News Thread
Post by: adarqui on November 05, 2017, 11:57:51 am
Kamworor pulling away .. he's Kipchoge's training partner, he's a beast from all accounts. Kipsang trying to catch back up to him.
Title: Re: The Misc Running News Thread
Post by: adarqui on November 05, 2017, 12:06:12 pm
Kipsang lost by like 2s .. awesome finish. Kamworor had a big gap on him, and Kipsang slowly closed it in the last mile, and was very close to pulling it off at the end.

Sondre Moen goes from 2:12:47 to 2:10:07,to 2:05:48! Now, under the watchful eye of Renato Canova, Moen went from 13:30 to 13:20 for 5k, ran 27:55 for 10KPB, Plus a half marathon PB of 62:18! Big last 5k in 14:38! Photo courtesy of Andy Lyons/Getty Images for IAAF,

THAT'S INSANE ^^


Sarah Hall, 2nd marathon in 5 weeks, first woman to be a USATF marathon champ AND mile champ:





Parker Stinson on his "meltdown":



Quote
Believe in yourself even when no one else does. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Today I tested my limits in my marathon debut. Today I found out my limits were 22 miles at 2:09:55 pace before some severe abdominal cramps and a right calve strain had me walking to the finish line. Next time I'm hoping to make it farther as there are no awards handed out to people for winning 90% of a race. However, I stand by what I said before the race...and I wouldn't change a thing. #YOLO

yup.. it's absolutely incredible.

and the improvement of Moen is incredible. If you get bored, wonder what his 100m's improved to, going from 2:12:47 to 2:05:48 :D :ninja: :highfive: :ibrunning:



I was putting it into perspective for my Aunt yesterday .. I was telling her that the guy who won yesterday's 1 mile race @ 4:33, well, the best marathoner in the world (Kipchoge) runs 26.2 miles at basically that pace (4:35) (2:00:32 for breaking2).

Performance of the week: SONDRE MOEN - EUROPEAN MARATHON RECORD
🇳🇴
On Sunday in Japan at the Fukuoka International Marathon, Norway’s Sondre Moen took the tape in 2.05:48 and became the first European to run a 2.05 Marathon.
🇳🇴
Moen’s race win and European Record is our performance of the week.
🇳🇴
Moen has been in fantastic shape in recent months having run a sub 28minute road 10k in September followed by a Norwegian record over Half Marathon in October in Valencia when he ran under the 1hour barrier clocking 59:48.
🇳🇴
He is a favourite of ours at The Kenya Experience as he completes much of his training in Iten, under the tutelage of Renato Canova, so we were delighted to see this breakthrough performance.
🇳🇴
The race on Sunday morning followed the planned 3’00”/km pace throughout the first 30km which was reached right on 3minute average pace. At that point pre race favourite Bedan Karoki of Kenya made a move and increased the pace into the mid 2’50’s. Moen went with him and it ended up being he, rather than the Kenyan who continued to push the pace in the latter stages of the race.
🇳🇴
Running the 29:16 for the 10km from 30-40 was more than enough to do irreparable damage to Karoki, who faded and was passed by Uganda’s 2012 Olympic Champion Stephen Kiprotich and Japan’s Suguru Osako in the latter stages of the race, and set Moen up for the win. The question then became how fast could the Norwegian man go, and in running the final 2.2k in 6:24 he ensured his name is now forever in the record books as the first European athlete to break the 2:06 barrier.
🇳🇴
Race Results:
1 Sondre Nordstad Moen (NOR) 2:05:48
2 Stephen Kiprotich (UGA) 2:07:10
3 Suguru Osako (JPN) 2:07:19
4 Bedan Karoki (KEN) 2:08:44
5 Ammanuel Mesel (ERI) 2:09:22
6 Daisuke Uekado (JPN) 2:09:27
7 Yoshiki Takenouchi (JPN) 2:10:01
8 Michael Githae (KEN) 2:10:46
9 Yuki Kawauchi (JPN) 2:10:53
10 Takuya Fukatsu (JPN) 2:12:04

Naples Half Marathon
- Found out Parker Stinson is running it .. curious to see how he does.
- A bunch of local people are running it, since it's not too far away (2 hours or so).

Houston Half & Full Marathon
- Hoping Jake Robertson & Bernard Lagat do great
- Also hoping Hasay sets the US half record .. Hasay vs Huddle tomorrow for the US.

The #1 ranked runner in the world, for the wings for life run, ran it out of Sunrise FL (a few minutes from me).

https://results.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/us/en/2018

Tons of people I know did it. I didn't realize how fun it was, looks awesome. Definitely doing this next year.

Also a local female got ~135th overall in the world (13th female in the world), and won Australia. Apparently, when you win a location, they pay for you to run it wherever you want - in the next race. So she won Sunrise FL last year, and chose to run it in AU.

ya I imagine it is. Lopez Lomong is just coming off winning the USA championships on track for 10k, and he got 5th (IIRC) in this race. Could have been dead from that, so to could people he competed with that night. But still there should be more Americans in solid enough shape to beat 30-40 year olds in a 10k road race.

https://www.athlinks.com/event/115192/results/Event/662599/Course/1040502/Results

look at the results.. dominated by people over 30 or late 20's, and 2 guys over 40.

i'd def say that's a bad sign for US running. How do you just not have more than enough young dudes capable of taking down those beasts? Apparently in Kenya, young Kenyans knock off top runners all of the time in XC races or dirt track races. Like you can expect to see "no names" go in there and beat the beasts (if they show up). The young folks are just itching to take down the best runners and make a name for themselves etc. Some random 10k XC results I found:

http://www.athleticskenya.or.ke/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/National-Cross-Country-Championships-Results-2018.pdf

more misc results: (awesome find, I know!)

Did you know

It was quickly discovered that USA's Fred Lorz, who crossed the line first at the 1904 Olympics, had cheated by flagging down a car and riding 11 miles as a passenger. He was disqualified and the victory was awarded to his compatriot Thomas Hicks, who (narrowly) survived the rigours of a race run in temperatures reaching 32 degrees Celsius thanks to a combination of brandy and strychnine.

JAKE vs Mo

the rematch, tomorrow!

Great North Run!

going to be sick. I predict Jake will drop the hammer early, try to hurt everyone early, no comfort, all pain. If he executes that, he'll get his sub60 half & beat Mo. Should be a great race.
Title: Re: The Misc Running News Thread
Post by: adarqui on September 09, 2018, 09:41:51 am
so apparently Mo hammered the pace early.. 4:22 opening mile.

only one that ended up sticking with him by the end was Jake, but Mo blew the lead open with 2 miles to go.

59:26 for Mo....... massive run, 3s shy of his pb. He's fit as fu*k going into Chicago (October).

Jake joined the sub60 club (59:57).

2:01:39 for KIPCHOGE. massive WR (-1:18).

http://results.scc-events.com/2018/?pid=leaderboard

very impressive: For the top 10 men/women, 3 Japanese runners in each group. JPN doesn't mess around!

Also: No one from the US in the top 10 for either gender. That shouldn't happen tbh, but it makes sense given the depth of the US in marathoning.

mindblown how fast Hassan ran a half marathon.. she's basically in peak mile shape, almost peak 5k shape.. and she drops a 1:05:15. Not too far off the women's WR.. WTF?

her male (project oregon) teammate (Kejelcha) also ran an insane half time, 59:17.. and he's in peak 3k/5k shape.

pretty crazy.

I didn't even know those two ran halfs...

Hassan got the women's EU record.

they have a great site! seems like a great half.

oregon project, massive PR...drugs. gotta at least suspect given how much smoke there is.

i dno.. has there been recent smoke though? alot of the smoke is pretty old AFAIK.

i mean these two athletes are world class. hassan is a 4:15 miler, 14:23 5k etc - both a month or so ago.. kejelcha is ridiculous too (12:5X 5k? last month and sub8 2 mile a few months ago). just didn't know they had half marathon endurance.

both times are astonishing to me though.. half marathon specialist times. but then I guess Mo can go from 5k/10k shape and drop 59:23 so, no idea. maybe half marathon specialist is sub59 for men. but for women, 1:05 is definitely among the best, that's upper echelon.

i'm naive to drugs. don't see how hassan/kejelcha would be cheating, especially being under project oregon: rupp is one of the most tested athletes in the world etc. tons of scrutiny of project oregon comes with more testing.

i personally don't like making drug allegations, especially for athletes like this who have never had problems. takes away from their accomplishments.

ya that's bad stuff.

i guess the definition of "old" is the question. alot of that happened 4+ years ago etc. Hassan/Kejelcha have only been training with him and the project for a few years, iirc.

but ya, it'd be great if they just ditched Salazar and picked up a clean coach to run it.

that testimony from Datahn is very damning.

2018 Chicago Marathon: Elite Field

https://www.chicagomarathon.com/press-center/elite-athlete-field/

MO FARAH, Rupp, Kirui, Mutai etc

crazy looking at the elite list.. how the fastest guys on there (2:04 guys) are "completely unknown" to most folks who follow running somewhat.

Also curious what Parker Stinson does. His CIM full was on pace to be 2:10 ish before he blew up due to cramps at like mile 22.

Mo is in incredible shape right now.. that Great North half he did (where he beat Jake) was really rough apparently, tons of headwind.. still dropped 59:26 or whatever. That's prime shape for him, and now he has marathon experience.

Galen in form to break the American Record too..

Quote
Under the plan, any Japanese citizen, whether a registered corporate league athlete or not, who broke the men's national record of 2:06:16 or the women's record of 2:19:12 on a record-legal course would receive 100 million yen, roughly 760,000 Euro or $937,000 USD at today's exchange rate. The athlete's coach or team would also receive a separate 50 million yen (380,000 Euro or $468,000 USD) bonus for their role in having made the record happen. If more than one athlete broke the record in the same race, the other athletes breaking the record would receive 10 million yen (76,000 Euro / $94,000 USD), with their coach or team getting 5 million yen (38,000 Euro / $47,000 USD).

Hoka One One put on an awesome event to market their new carbon fiber plate accelerated foot rocker clown shoes, similar to the VaporFly 4% clown shoes. I'm personally not a fan of this new stuff, these shoes feel mechanical. I got the vapor fly 4%'s to test them, and I absolutely hate them. They don't feel like "real" shoes.

regardless.. Walmsley set a 50 mile world record. Incredible pace.. 5:48 IIRC.

https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a27364706/jim-walmsley-50-mile-world-best-hoka-one-one-100k-challenge/

4:50:07 for 50 miles.

that's incredible.

footage from Stinson's 25km american record.

Quote
25k (15.5343 miles) is a hard distance for many fans to put their minds around so maybe this will help. Stinson hit 10k in 29:20, split 62:03 for the half marathon and still had another 2.42 miles to go.

i dno like 4:42 min/mi pace or something like that.

flying.

oh btw there's a new guy on the 5k scene.

Telahun Bekele

dropped 12:52 at Rome Diamond League, for the world lead.

then 5 days later, drops 12:57.

after his wins, he runs around freaking out for like 10 minutes. he seems pretty amp'd. exciting.

he beat a stacked field at Rome, including Barega who hit 12:43 last year, at 19 y/o.

Gabe Grunewald

great vid, but rough to watch considering her optimism and the eventual outcome.

she passed recently.

pretty much every social media running outlet & athlete i follow has posted about her.
