Couple things. If they are going to race at 5K, they better do it soon. Geb is not getting any younger and at the sppeds these guys are running, losing half a step could be fatal.
While I agree about El G and his bunnies, lets remember than Geb is the one who said after his first marathon, when he finished third, that he wouldn't run another one with top-notch guys again. What is that?
I don't think that either of these guys are really racers, they are runners. The difference is Ryun vs Liquori in the Dream Mile. One could run fast, one knew how to race fast and win, evern though he didn't have the talent the first guy did.
