I'm rooting for Mo Trafeh to do something special at the NY City Half Marathon this weekend.
In case you missed it, Trafeh led the Jacksonville Gate River Run (15 kilometers) just last weekend from start to finsh (4:22 opening mile), winning with an impressive 42:58. Not bad for a self-coached runner with NO SPONSOR!
Good write up on Trafeh in Running Times.
Currently his sole means of support is road race prize money, so you know Trafeh is hungry and motivated. Could you imagine Ryan Hall racing 15K an a half-marathon on back to back weekends?
Go for it Mo! I'm rooting for you to hang in with marathon world record holder Halie Gebrselassie. You can watch coverage of the race at 7:30 am EST at universalsports.com.
