I received this e-mail Chris Bain sometimes early this morning:
You won't believe this.... I just ran a PR--2:31:06 and took 4th place. I'm now officially a millionaire in Korea.
The trip so far has been amazing. The hospitality has been unbelievable; truly elite treatment for us invitedd runners. Tomorrow all of the other athletes head home and I head off into other parts of Korea.
Please note, Bain ran 2:36 for 26.2 LESS THAN a week ago!! I am going to throw my Lydiard/Daniels books into a fire.
