I think in Mo's case he wants to prove he can do the marathon and wants another go
I think the commentators were ridiculous yesterday - Mo obviously wanted the British record - and if he got it they would have been saying how fantastic it was. He misses it by 2 mins or whatever and hes slaughtered 2mins over 26 miles !!!!
He has got the medals from the last Olympics perhaps next he wants a marathon medal at the Olympics
The intensity these guys run at means you cant do 4/5 mararthons a year so when you do one your preperations and training must be spot on.. Also you need to run a marathon to know what it takes - then next time set your preperations accordingly. It was MOs first one - he will be better prepared physically and more importantly mentally next time
