London Marathon Review

America's sweetheart Deena Kastor breaks her own American record by winning the London Marathon in 2:19:36. She's now the fourth fastest woman marathoner ever behind Racliffe, Ndereba, and Noguchi. Felix Limo of Kenya wins the men's race in 2:06:39. Khalid Khannouchi posts a strong fourth place finish in 2:07:04, and is probably already thinking of Chicago. Gebrselassie cramps and finishes in ninth. Paula Radcliffe hit the snooze button eight times this morning.

And I hit the snooze only 3 times, and then ran 4 miles. I wanted to run with the HRB gang this evening, but the afternoon heat scared me away, so I'll show up just for the meeting and the food.

Keith.
