    Lee you are absolutely correct. An amazing women's race. For 2 women to go 2:24 under those condition was incredible. If they had had nice 48 degrees and overcast both would have been in the 2:21 range easy.

    I didn't get to see the race on TV but I followed the webcast and understand it was coy cat and mouse game between those two and from different nations who are heated rivals as well. I will enjoy seeing these two ladies renew the rivalry in Athens, especially now that they have re-proven their abilities to handle the heat.

    <Is Radcliffe running 26 or 10?>

    From the link to UK athletics provided in the London Marathon thread (http://www.ukathletics.net/vsite/vconte ... em,00.html ), Paula has been named to the marathon team.

    "Currently my plan is to compete in the marathon in Athens. However, I would like to be also entered for the 10,000m so that I have the option to make the decision later. All my preparation is gearing towards the marathon and I feel it is important to compete in the event that your heart is in, which for me at the moment is the marathon. It’s great to have the first hurdle out of the way with my selection to Team GB for the marathon."

    Given her injury problems, she would do well to just focus on one race.

    A couple of days ago Radcliffe stated she was definitely doing the marathon in Athens, and was still unsure about whether to do the 10000 as well.

    Did I miss all the chat about the Boston women on another thread or what? I can't believe people on this board aren't going crazy about that fantastic women's race. That was mighty riveting. It seemed like Ndereba was in control, judging by the look on Alemu's face, but you never can tell -- I've seen runners who looked like they were about to have a stroke suddenly whip out a vicious kick.

    Any predections out there on the Athens women? Is Radcliffe running 26 or 10? And if it's the former, can Ndereba beat her?

    And I think Ndereba's 2:24 is quite superior to Okayo's 2:22 in London.

    Sooooo sorry Steve my friend. I actually flipped to the Bostom Marathon website and that was the time I saw and I thought for a minute it was for the full distance. So I decided to have a little fun my pulling the same joke on the board.

    All in good fun though.

    Yes, small brain fart...I recall John Ngugi ran a 4.00 or so in the middle of the race to promptly remove himself from the field, and to run a Kenyan theft tactic similar to Peter Rono.

    Ngugi won the 5000m @ Seoul. Kipkemboi Kimeli was third in the 10,000. I remember Joshua Kipkemboi as being a steepler primarily.

    "Who was the 43 year old with the lead back?"

    Kipkemboi (Kenya) who was 7th is listed as 45 yrs old.

    Ryzhov (Russia) who was 9th is listed as 44 yrs old.

    Good running by the old guys in the heat!

    No position changes after 40K I see. Suggestions that the race be made a nice round metric number obviously make sense. :-)

    Who was the 43 year old with the lead back? They had it on at the Y at lunch and someone said something about that.
