      I hear the drums.

      They are the Drums of Destiny.

      The Gabester hath returned with a vengeance (OK, it's more like a minor comeback, but you get The idea)

      GO GABE GO !!!!!

        I just got back and am at a computer where I can type more.

        Gabe did look good, he just couldn't quite kick it in to bring it home.

        The race went out with Achon rabbiting in first and Chapa close behind. After some initial shuffling Rupp was third and Gabe fourth. It stayed this way through 800 each quarter in just under 60 seconds when Achon dropped off to let Chapa take it through 1200.

        At 1200 Chapa didn't really pull off so much as Rupp decided it was time to go around and Gabe went with him but there was a few meter gap that Gabe was never able to make up and in fact gave up a spot at the finish.

        So, a pretty evenly run race, I have to think that was pretty close to the best Rupp had today.

          It actually looks like Chapa moved out on the back straight to let Rupp go by the inside but Rupp went around the outside.

            The fact that Rupp is getting faster in the mile,means watch out come outdoor in the 10k.

              Marlow, some detective you are. I think you missed the story here, pal.

              It's a Rupp story...not a Gabe story.

                I'm with Marlow--it's a Gabe story everytime he runs!

                  Marlow is a military man of mystery... how can a guy with such an armed forces background be such a fan of a moonbeam kinda guy like Gabe?

                    That is so yesterday; do you know that all of the obsession has switched over to Rupp (and all of the illegal assistance that he has gotten from his 'dirty' coach).

                      How does a 3:58 mile compare with those of 10 ten 5 and 10k runners? Does this put him in line to compete with the 27:00 or even the 26:30 type(s)? I thought Goucher ran 3:55 or so at his best.

                        runners have different 'curves' (see our esteemed curve fitter starting with "e"). After all of his fast long times this is the first time he has been able to run this fast 'short'. This might mean he can drop 5+ seconds in the 5000 and 10-15 in the 10,000, and that is what we have seen with his 5000 (13:18i).

                          And it's his indoor season debut. I believe this time Gabe is back. With a few more races under his belt .... who knows.

                            This is an excellent time for Rupp. Along with his 1:49 last week, it suggests he has found some new gears which may help him contest the 5 and 10 later in the year.

                            The young kids (of course this includes the most remarkable Fernandez, 3:55 at 18 in a solo effort - I still can't comprehend what this kid has done and may yet be capable of doing), should be in for some remarkable stuff in the years to come. The record books will likely be changing.

                            Rupp v. Fernandez in a couple years (or the way German is going maybe much sooner), over 5k should be fantastic.

                            Also, good for Gabe. The guy obviously loves the sport. Its really fantastic to see him in the battles with the young guns and holding his own very well....go Gabe!

                              it looks to me that a real story could develop with Abbott, Austin ... 3:58.23. Closing very fast from far back.
