Congratulations to Tiger Woods on winning the 2019 Masters. For you hard-core martial artists that’s a very prestigious and difficult professional golf tournament.
I would imagine Worknesh Degefa will dominate the elite women’s marathon in Boston. There’s a chance she will literally win by a mile – more than five minutes ahead of her nearest competitor. That depends on how well she closes the race with no one in sight to push her. One of our advantages from practicing together in class is synergy or inspiration to and from others.
The men’s elite race will likely be very close. It could come down to a decent-sized pack (say a dozen runners) sprinting the last couple of miles.
UPDATE: Closer than I thought, but Worknesh Degefa did win the women’s in 2:23:31 followed by
Kiplagat, Edna (KEN) 2:24:13

UPDATE #2: Lawrence Cherono won the men’s by two seconds over Lelisa Desisa and by ten seconds over Kenneth Kipkemoi. Considering that they had been running for more than 7600 seconds that’s a razor-thin margin.
