  1. Hey aficionados of da oval

    I find the conversation with Squires on the decline of a marathoner post 4-5 good marathons pretty interesting. Got me itching to see if any true study has been done on that or if that is just anecdotal. In any case it might be a good excuse for me and my mediocre marathons.

    Anyway, with Hall done, and Meb on an understandably decline, who do you guys see as the top three to five for the marathon US team in ’16 now? I need a pie chart of percentages from Joaquin please so I can get this in with my local book ASAP.

    Now that we are post marathon, can’t wait to hear of your take on Meb’s running with a Staten Island runner (Cassidy) to bring him into the finish. I guess this is the only race type in track in which that could happen, but I’d love to hear where you guys think in track a guy could blow up (who would that be) and who they would then usher in.

    Great ‘cast as always guys as always.
