Exciting race. Conditions played a huge part.

He stated he was going out for a 2.50, so bang on really.

And only 2 mins away Tro!

A local runner i know was running and dropped 2/3 the way through. Said the conditions were terrible. Also one of the posters here (can't remember his TT username) ran it, missing out on 2.45 by seconds! Great run.

I think he got somewhere in spite of his pushy parents not because of them

Any way there's no point, Lionel Sanders has already won Kona this year (or it seems that way if you read Slowtwitch)

I love the fact that he raced his previous race (half marathon) in a panda costume and finished 2nd overall Very Happy

On a serious note. Has anybody watched the interviews. His neck still doesn't look right. Looks like his head is leading to his right. Are there any video of Tim running in Boston it would be interesting to see (he never was a pretty runner)
