Thank you for posting the link. I missed my breakfast for this. It was an excellent race with Kebede in 2:04's. Ritz did 2:07.50!

Thank you NBC for showing it online.

NBC did not put the clock on the screen so most of time I have no idea what the times were. Guys goes to finish line and the announcer gives the time but no time is shown for him and they did not show time for any top male finishers.

Thank you again.

Kebede's splits - 62:55/61:43. :!: His second half alone would have placed him in the top eight at the World Half Marathon Champs.

Joanie, I very much doubt it will be a sprint. They can barely pick their feet off the ground!

A photo-finish for the women ??!! 2:22:03? Baysa (sp?)
And yes, it was a sprint at the end, but a ghastly one.

Really hard push the second half. 2:04:39
2:07:50 for Ritz, who was going hard, picking up the pace until after 35, where he faded a bit, losing his chance at a 2:06; still faster than his coach's 2:08:15 (slightly short) NYC PR.

Top 3 are Ethiopian; so more Kenyan monopoly.

41 at the start, mid-40s at the end.

Still a three-woman race

Ritz 2:07:47!!!!

1 Kebede, Tsegaye (ETH) 5 25 04:46 - +00:00 02:04:38

Baysa's pretty incredible. She's only 25 but it was her nineteenth career marathon. Equals her PB of 2:22:04.

Stephen Pifer 2:18:19 for 23rd. I'm guessing that's Pifer the miler.

Excellent result for her! Here's a comment from the RW interview from 3 weeks ago:

"I hope to be, at the end, under 2:28."

So, that result must feel pretty good.

(side note -- in the pic of her in the RW interview, she looks more like a multi eventer...)

Two other USA women round out the top 10 with good result for each:

9. Dot McMahan 2:32:11 (her PB is 2:31:50)
10. Stephanie Pezzullo 2:32:42 (debut)

Some revision to USA all-time lists:

Ritz now #3.
(behind Khannouchi & Hall, or Hall & Khannouchi if you prefer)

Metivier-Baillie now =#8.
(behind Kastor, Samuelson, Flanagan, Goucher, Davila, Lewy-Boulet, Runyan, =Hastings. Or, she's #11, if you include the "aided course" times of Brown, Jones, & Hastings.)

Yea, it was pretty weird. Searching for words, etc. Never one of the best but really bad this time.

one other USA marathoner note from this race:

16. Jeff Eggleston 2:12:03 (1:09 PB)

So far this year, he has run 2:15 (March), 2:14 (May), 2:13 (June), and now 2:12 (October).

I think he has a 2:11 in his future... :)

Shame on both of you!! She's just carried away in her enthusiasm and can't find the exact words to convey her excitement.

Say what? That is a silly statement. It just a marathon and not a super fast one, for the women, at that. Samuelson is a fine athlete and nice roll model but, she is not Joan of Arc.

Apparently the placing of my tongue ever so slightly in my cheek was difficult to discern . . .
Must I ALWAYS use that inane smilie emoticon??!! :D (sic)
Joannie is awesome and to quibble with her commentary is just as "silly" in my book. She's much better than some commentators we all know, huh? She can comment to me on races all she wants!

BTW I had no idea Mariya Konovalova once had cancer. I always wondered why she had no results after being a really good track runner in the mid/late 90s (under her maiden name of Pantyukhova) until she returned in 2006-07.

Yes, always use a :lol: otherwise it looks more like a foot in the mouth... :lol:

Well, yes compared to Carol Lewis, Saint Joan is Eric Sevareid. But I still think it is time to move on. Though on the female side, no obvious candidates come to mind. Maybe they could just have a robot on the motorcycle...or a female manikin with a speaker and Hutchings could just talk through it.

I'm surprised by all of the "!!!'s" by folks in discussing Ritz's time. I know the financial reasons for continuing to run the marathon, but even after today's performance leap, it seems clear that his sweet spot more likely falls between 5000 and half-marathon than in the longer event.

Ritz in the Tribune today that he didn't want to try to go from 2:09 down to 2:04 in one hop. Which makes sense. I suppose next time he can go with the leaders and see what happens.

But I agree with your premise. It is a tough world out on the marathon scene.

Ndungu ran 2:07:04 in Otsu in March, so is neither PR nor debut

Dawit is experienced marathoner; think generally known as Abdullah Dawit Shami

Dawit has run sub-2:06 twice this year so definitely not a debut.

And if we're being picky, it wasn't really Kitwara's debut as he ran in Rotterdam but dropped out just before the 27km mark with a calf injury.
