      I don't think that prize money and bonuses are much of a lure for someone in Gebrselassie's psoition.

        I agree -- I just posted that info about the marathon b/c the event itself had become part of the discussion -- as you stated, it also seems to me that Geb is motivated by the pursuit of great performances (times/championships).

        weatherunderground avg highs/lows for Dubai in January -- 73/58.

          I missed this thread while on vacation, but gotta give props for digging up a great stat!
