Looks like Geb has signed up for this year's NY Marathon, so you were right after all. Smile

I refuse to read or view any of the post race interviews in hopes that the context of the quote was just taken wrong... He retired from the race, not from the sport!

As expected, Geb has un-retired after giving it some thought.
