    Even better than watching, I’m going into the city to cheer for the runners 😀 I’m excited to be part of the support that I had last year when running it!

    Meb is my favorite competitor. And you have Deena making the podium and beating out Kara and Desi … interesting but then again you can never bet against Deena

    No time predictions? For shame sir!

    I say Kipsang wins in 2:04:XX with Mutai close behind. Top American will be Vail in maybe 6th and 2:08:XX (Big 2 minute PR, you heard it here!). Meb in 10-15th 2:10:XX (He hasn’t trained quite like he did for Boston). Deena will break the masters record, but I think barely and finish in 8th. Kiplagat will win for the women in 2:22:XX with Deba a minute or so back and a big DNF for Keitany in her first marathon, or just a slow time. She’ll go out too bold and falter in the latter stages.

    Bold predictions! Could be way off though

  4. I’m hoping your right with your predictions on Meb 🙂
    I’m such a Kara Goucher fangirl, I’d love to see her have a good race! Though Deena is pretty spectacular too- I read recently she’s hoping to run a faster time than her first marathon ever. Amazing.

  5. I’ll be running. I’ll have to catch a recap after the race.
