A running blog, of sorts
But he did look behind him once. What a rookie mistake!
Great video, horrible music!Yeah warriors do not need watches, only people who have self doubts!I'd like to see Ryan run without a watch.
Were you surfing for a new pair of arm warmers?You don't need to look at your watch when you're in front. In that position a look over your shoulder is where the motivitation comes from. What's with the religous images at the end - subliminal message?
Subli...sublimi....subliminal! That easy for you to say Grellan.I didn't put them there ;)
I recently heard an interview with him; fascinating humble guy with a remarkable story. It is here if you are interested: http://competitorradio.competitor.com/?s=meb
I like the way he used the corner to look back - barely had to turn and definitely didn't break his stride.He may have been in pain, but in the last 500 m he started to float over the ground! If only I looked like that at the end of a marathon!Nice clip, thanks.
Yes, very impressive. I knew he won, but had no idea he looked that good doing it. Why can't I finish a marathon like that??(Because I don't run 120 miles a week?)
Thanks Scott. I hadn't seen that. He runs well - very relaxed and smooth. Yes, when racing for the win, a watch isn't needed.Get yourself a beanie, gloves, a USA singlet and a better tan, and you could pass for his twin brother ;)Still, being a bit old-school, I suffer a little from this when I see blokes wearing girlie arm warmers ;)P.S. Thanks Jen for the link - I'll check that out.
Thanks Ewen,Now you've done it. After that comment and watching that video I've decided to get rid of the arm warmers and buy a lime green or canary yellow leotard!
