It’ll be a brief moment, usually shortly after entering the turn on the track after the 200 mark. I’ll feel a lightness and a flow and I’ll feel like Bernard Lagat. If just for a few meters. Is there another runner who glides so well and who makes shifting into another gear seem so easy? Not unlike Martin Lel turning for home in a marathon.

From Flotrack, here’s a workout video (I can’t embed it) of Lagat and others on a golf course. Bernard Lagat on Flotrack
