Friday Inspiration: Galen to the Marathon

With Ryan Hall’s retirement, the U.S. lost one of its few truly great marathoners. But this week, news arrived that Galen Rupp will be trying his luck at the marathon this year. Its too early to tell if Rupp will be the next Meb or Hall*, but I’m excited to watch him race.

Here he is destroying the 10k.

 

*and he already comes with some doping baggage.
