    I think he will do this, posted in the running thread the reasons why he failed at Monza.
    The conditions, the route and the planning are on point.

    Last pacemaker change over was shaky, Kipchoge tripped a little.

    I am so impressed by Kipchoge. 2:50 kimometers throughout, that’s admirable consistency.

    Really hope he makes it.

    Bang on sub 2 hour pace. His body must be screaming at him to stop but he must be mentally as tough as nails.
    His running style is still the same as at the start.
    This will be remembered for ever.

    It is the side on views that you can actually see how fast and in what good form he.
    Truly history making. I can hardly believe it.

    I love that view because the stride is so smooth it's incredible. I love and hate seeing people run on the side before collapsing after 10 seconds

    What a finish eh. He is a machine in a human body.
    This is THE best human achievement ever. And if anyone disagrees then tell me what was better.

    This has certainly inspired me...to grow a moustache. Some of the taches on show were majestic

    I don't know anything about running or marathons. What was the previous best time or what's a normal winning time?

    But that doesn't stop it being an incredible achievement. And it's fair for it not to be a world record

    There was no atmosphere in that monza attempt, he lives off the energy of the crowd.

    Also look at the formation, was all over the place.
