Will @G_Rupp break @ryanhall3 's American record tmw? We think he might.

Will @G_Rupp break @ryanhall3 's American record tmw? We think he might.

However, aside from an injury, it’s going to be interesting to analyze what Rupp’s race means. In the past, we’ve repeatedly told people that a strong half-marathon during the buildup isn’t a pre-requisite for a good marathon (and a super fast one may not actually be a great sign) but that’s normally because people are racing them in the midst of their heavy mileage phase. This is a little different due to when it’s being run so analyzing what it all means is going to require some thought. But if Rupp does break Hall’s AR, then we know one thing – the excitement for his Boston debut is going to be through the roof even if that doesn’t guarantee he’ll run well in Boston as a marathon is all about excelling over the final 10k. But if he comes up short and looks super strong, then there still also is plenty of reason to be excited about his Boston debut.
