Emmanuel Mutai has run the Virgin London Marathon five times. He has placed second twice, 4th, seventh and yes, first. His personal best is a 2:03:52 for his second in Chicago last year, the fastest non-winning time on a legal course EVER.
Andy Edwards of Trackwise/Globerunner spoke with Emmanuel on Wednesday, April 9. We see Emmanuel, who ran 14:16 between 30 and 35k in 2011 when he won (in 2:04:40) as one of the people who can rain on many marathoner's parades on Sunday.
