If Hall wins, he'll become the first American winner of the race since Grey Meyer in 1983. What do you thinkdoes he have what it takes? I think he's a great guy and super talented and hope he does well in Boston. He made a simple yet great point before running in Beijing this yearthat he will prepare as well as he possibly can for the race and run his best on race day. After that, its all up to how well his competitors have prepared and race. Easier said than done I know but its definitely what it comes down to right?
The Boston Marathon is the granddaddy of the World Marathon Majors, to win here would mean as much to me as winning any marathon in the world, including the Olympic Games. To win in Boston would show the world that American distance running is indeed back to the days of Salazar, Beardsley, and Rodgers. I hope that I can contribute to bringing American marathoning back to the forefront. There is no better place to do that than Boston. What is done in Boston lives on for all time."Read the full Coolrunning article
