    Ask the steeplers! They seem to be of hardier stock.

      Well, it is not as easy or as advantageous to run in a pack in the steeple; there are advantages to being first to a hurdle and to the water jump. So, the trade-off for leading versus following are better for leading. It is also 10 percent slower and thus the running speed involves less wind resistance. Still, it is not uncommon to have the steeple start at a modest pace for the first few laps in championship settings. For instance, I do not think that Evan Jager has led the first several laps at USATF. He waits a bit, then gets to the front, then speeds up, at least that is my memory. How do the Kenyan Trials races go, fast from the beginning?
