Today's NY Times: Ryan Hall's Rookie Hubris in London; Maurice Greene's Possible Doping

At Run Junkie we love all the standard running mags, but our fondness for the Gray Lady is hard to hide as well. And today she didn't disappoint, with two good pieces. One on Ryan Hall's London Marathon, where he had the temerity to ask the pace-setters to pick it up at mile 16...and then immediately get dropped (story). And another piece on retired sprinter and former world champion Maurice Greene's apparent implication in the Trevor Graham doping case (story).

Postscript: (4-15-08) In a surprise move, the IAAF puts full support behind Greene, despite some pretty damning evidence (story).
