WTF WTF WTF
1 mile to go for the men and they’re on world record pace. Really? WR pace
It will be another sprint down Boylston to the finish line. Mosop and Mutai should break R.K. Cheruiyot’s course record of 2.05.52!
At 24 miles, Mosop and Mutai are running at a blazing 4:25 split!
YESSSS, they are still accelerating!
Caroline Kilel wins in 2.22.36, and Des Davila did not give up, fastest US women in 2.22.39 in 4 years

Davila makes a move a move over the final stretch,
but Kilel responds. It will be close

Yep he is still accelerating…
Mutai’s 20 mile time 1:34:05 (4:32!!!!!!!!)
Kim Smith and defending champ Robert Cheruiyot have stepped off the course.
Big move from Geoffrey Mutai. Gap to Mosop, then a gap to Gebremariam.
Kara Goucher a minute back, but still on 2:24 pace, hey, that’s not slow, she was still pregnant 6 months ago…
The 30K time for Hall is 1:28:22.
Davila could win it… she has run 8.51 for 3k, 32.33 for 10k, twenty-four minutes left of running, so…
