Ryan Hall Chicago Marathon Training

Ryan Hall has been gearing up for 2011 Chicago marathon by tweaking his training plan. Having been out run by the Kenyans every time, Ryan Has been studying the Kenyans and he now feels he has the answer to beat them.

“I’m realizing more and more how important it is for me to maintain contact. That’s something I did well at Boston this year, where guys would get away from me,” he said in an interview this summer with a Stanford alumni magazine.

“That’s how I stay in the front, but how do I win the race? That’s a whole different question,” he added. “That’s what I’m starting to address now.”
