Ryan Hall Toes Line at London Marathon on His Way to Beijing

Nice profile of marathoner Ryan Hall in today’s New York Times (story) as he gets ready for this weekend’s London Marathon (race site), a key waypoint on his way to Beijing this summer. The piece has some nice background on the 5’10” 140 pound former NCAA standout from Stanford; a good review of his past results; and a dash of insight into his recent training sessions (10 mile tempo runs at 4:48/mile!). With his current trajectory, Olympic hardware seems a real possibility.
