    Heck, I heard a blurb on the radio (Times Radio) and saw several reprints of the AP story in area papers.

    • Putting into a freaky sort of context, if Gerry Lindgren started 344 metres in front of Cheptegei, that is 6 miles to the finish line, and Lindgren then race his 6 mile WR of 27:11.6, IMO Gerry would still have been lapped.

        Running fast anaerobically is completely different than running fast aerobically.

          Ahh, but running is running.

          Except when it is me and my stupid Huawei P30 and accompanying GPS watch that claims my sprinting is still walking.

          • To repeat my mantra, just as there is no such thing as a GOAT in any one event or many, AOY is a personal subjective opinion. Why is there this compulsion to argue someone else's opinion?

                I won't argue that either.

                  Yeah, sometimes I get tired of sitting on my front porch and yelling, "Git offa my lawn!" at all them whippersnappers.

                    The sport in a nutshell.
                    Does anyone get their athletic news from those sources anymore? If you have even a passing interest in running, Google and YouTube and all the others are happy to push tons of content your way.

                      Indeed. For running/T&F, it's here or Letsrun; that's about it.

                      • Both Chep's world record got newspaper coverage in Australia, and Mondo's WR was shown on breakfast television...I was pleasantly surprised when non-track-geek friends (but folks who did some distance running in high school) were messaging links to the 10000 result yesterday ("100x15.7s 100m back-to-back")

                          Agreed. I know the conversation of where these races were covered comes up from time to time, but nothing has changed to make the sport more appealing to general fans. Especially with Bolt gone. And I highly doubt anyone one on these boards is pulling up the NYT for thier source or running news. The front page here is obviously more than sufficient along with some sources on social media.

                              What's particularly galling is that the N.Y. Times had a very nice article about Kipchoge the day before the London Marathon, including his philanthropic efforts, but nothing about the race itself.

                              • Getting back to Warholm . . . I just saw an Instagram asking whether he should run the 800. As with Jeremy Warner, I guess the logical response would be, 'Why? He seems to be doing so well in his day-job.'
