    I initially was wondering why I didn't see Flanagan's time on the elite leaderboard, then it occurred to me that she ran with the masses. Her 2:35:04 and Chloe Richardson's 2:37:08 would have been 19th and 20th among the elites (#20 elite is 2:39:28).

      Not a lot of depth...4 Ethiopians and 2 Kenyans battle it out and 5 minutes later the Brits arrive. Only 16 under 2:20 and 20th was 2:26....not great with the new shoes.

        That's the elite field only. Another 31 were under 2:26 in the mass field.

              Last year's winner, Shura Kitata had a very lonely race, he dropped off the pace of the lead group early on but then ran alone as the next set of pacemakers for the Brits were running 65 for the first half.

                Twins certainly run in that family!

                  She would have done better than 68th (2:53) or 71st (2:55) in Tokyo.

                    I doubt it.... and even so so what? 40th isn't great either. Dew point of 72 is crazy hot to run in.

                    A race that was moved to Sapporo to avoid the extreme heat and humidity in Tokyo found little relief on a winding course through the city. The starter’s gun went off near 6 a.m. under a sunny sky and with a temperature reading of 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 Celsius). It climbed to nearly 86 degrees (30) near the finish, with a humidity of around 65%.

                    “The weather was really hot and tough for a competition,” said Kosgei, the world record-holder in the event at 2:14.04. “We tried our best to finish.”

                    There were 88 runners entered in the field and 15 recorded a “did not finish.” That included world champion Ruth Chepngetich of Kenya.

                      Yeah the ultimate no man's land...and 1:05 was way too fast for that lot.

                        Years ago Jake and Sam and their mother and aunt ran a road relay together.

                          Together with the Trials winner they selected 2 athletes who skipped the Trials knowing it was very unlikely that 3 runners would get the time there. Purdue was back in training after injury, and was confident she would be in shape for the Olympics and had run faster than the other 2 but it seems that the selectors didn't consult her on her situation.

                            In the conditions at Tokyo it wouldn't have matter who they picked. So they should have just picked the fastest. But the selectors want to think they are clever.

                            A warning to anyone who thinks about changing the US selection method.

                              Just to be clear, prior to yesterday, Purdue had run faster than Twell but not Piasecki at the marathon

                                Marathon selection can be particularly problematic with there often being a lack of head-to-head records, differences between courses and trying to compare a respectable position in a Champs with a faster time in a big city race.
