top "non-elite" (i.e. normal bib number) finisher was matthew herbert in 31:41, 18th overall. that's damn fast.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

this was so incredible.. kipruto lost his shoe on the first or second lap of a 3000m STEEPLE, and ends up still winning..

seriously, jaw was dropped.

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.

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).

got a german language stream on in the background while i do some work. it's amazing to watch the start of a race that big, thousands and thousands of people squeezing together toward the start line and then breaking into a run in a continuous wave.

leaders hit the first km in 2:43. i did 3:41 as one of two tempo kms yesterday.  :derp: :uhcomeon: :goodjobbro: :almostascoolasnyancat:
