I'm just going to start dictating Ellen's report until she returns to duty...

Miles 20, 21:   13:56, 14:39

Everything is wet and I'm dying.  Stopped to punch a random guy with resting douche-face and steal his umbrella.  Heartbreak.  What drives you to push forward when you're simultaneously climbing a hill and swimming upstream?  Pretended the asphalt was Trump's face.  Effective.

It's already halfway written for you!

Jeez, those last few miles were like the bermuda triangle.  Even on the elite side I've never seen implosions like that.  Kirui had a 90 second lead on the crazy little asian after 35k, then ended up 2 1/2 minutes back.   Virtually the entire chase pack on both sides dropped out after the final glimpse of them.  Lead man caught all the women except desi (that was the main suspenseful part at the end to see if he could pull it off  :P  ).   Sarah Sellers (Utah native!) didn't even realize she was second until someone told her and then still didn't believe them  :hah:

Apparently the Barkley RD controls the climate for Boston too.

I was talking to a girl at the gym about logistics for the upcoming Broad Street Run while watching and I was reminded that the last time I did that race [2016], it was in conditions much like they ran up in Boston yesterday

That race is only ten miles; I can't imagine what 26.2 would have been like = certainly a Sufferfest

Again, well done to everyone, and I hope you have all rehydrated, refueled, rested and defrosted today

Yeah it was exactly the same!!! Except for the 30 degree temps and howling winds in your face

Interesting article.

Why Men Quit and Women Donít

"The results for Boston, one of the most competitive marathons in the world, were doleful this year: The winning times for both men and women were the slowest since the 1970s, and the midrace dropout rate was up 50 percent overall from last year.

But finishing rates varied significantly by gender. For men, the dropout rate was up almost 80 percent from 2017; for women, it was up only about 12 percent. Overall, 5 percent of men dropped out, versus just 3.8 percent of women. The trend was true at the elite level, too."

Much ado about nothing. 

1) 90% of those idiots were in a state of delirium
2) she was tailgating (though I guess he did sort of cut her off)
3) it WAS after the finish line
4) He may well have said sorry, but you can't tell from the video. 

Poor self-awareness, but not exceptionally douchey.  Still outside Moonwalking Allison's league.

Also he was far from alone in exaggerated finishing gestures if the person in the puke green on the far right who finished just after him is any indication.  He just had the more unfortunate timing.  And at least neither of them crossed the line with 7 kids spread out along the length of the road, which I believe was one of Moonwalking Allison's crimes.

My chip didnít register between the start and the half mat. Are you going to start an investigation of me?

Nowadays you better go all the way.

I suspect his revenue jumps after the biggies like Boston, New York and Chicago.
