NEW YORK (USA): Ryan Vail isn't predicting a time in the New York Marathon but he is aiming to be the first domestic finisher next month, informs Athletics Illustrated. "I go to NYC because I like the idea of racing without pacemakers; I don't have to worry about the clock, just race the guys around me. It reminds me of cross-country, and you don't get too many opportunities to run that way after college. My goal is to place in the top-10 overall and be the first American," he said. Vail's lifetime best for the distance stands at 2:10:57.
