(Editor's note: As part of his buildup for the Virgin Money London Marathon, Mo Farah will be racing the NYC Half on March 16, just less than one month before his debut at the full marathon distance. The 2012 Olympic double gold and 2013 World double gold medalist at 10,000m and 5,000m has shown his ability over the half marathon distance. Much interest is focused on Mo Farah's run in London.
David Monte, RRW, and also the elite athlete consultant for the NYRR, wrote the following piece on Mo Farah's plan to race in the Big Apple on March 16. )
