About Half Way Through Marathon – U.S.’s Flanagan and Goucher Further Back

Half  way through and 4 are now out of race.  U.S. Flanagan and Goucher at 10th and 15th place in the pack.  Water stations causing chaos.  Athletes running into each other.

Mary Keitany is a favorite of mine and she is near the front.  I’ve been watching her kind of hanging back.  She led the NYC Marathon all the way up to the end and then was over-taken.  Hardest course in the world.  She probably is hanging back with that in back of her head.  She went on to run London Marathon this year and won.
