Melee is sure to ensue soon for both men's and women's races. Mary Keitany looks like she's totally in charge for the women, but someone's going to try to make a move before long. For the men, that pack is still huge. Look for something from the Ethiopians soon (Gebremariam and Desisa). They've been riding in back all race.
Mary Keitany has this look on her face like it is time to make the field hurt, and now, there are six,

Kiplagat breaks Half Marathon World record. Kenya’s Florence Kiplagat lowered the World Half marathon record by 38 seconds in Barcelona on Sunday. Kiplagat stopped the clock in 1hr, 05.12min in a gun-to-tape performance to beat the previous record of 1:05:50 set by her compatriot Mary Keitany at the 2011 RAK Half Marathon. The 26-year-old 2010 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships gold medallist actually finished fourth overall, beaten only by a trio of male runners, including former World 5,000m champion Eliud Kipchoge, who retained the men’s title in 1:00:52. She passed 10km in 31.08, more than a minute faster than her official personal best for the distance in a 10km race, but 23 seconds off Keitany’s pace three years ago. Kiplagat then pushed hard over the next five kilometres to bring the world record within her grasp. She passed 15km in 46:35, five seconds faster than Keitany and just seven seconds outside Tirunesh Dibaba’s world record for the distance, which was set in a 15km race. At 16k ...
