2:26:26 - cause it's got lots of marathon-y numbers in there and probably pretty close to what she could run.

2:26:26.22 - it's a numerical palindrome

2:28:33...or 10 minutes off of winner, whichever is lower. Hot day will be slower. Cold day maybe break 2:28.

It's probably a good thing but I haven't seen Gwen in the lead women's pack the few times they've shown the women. Broadcast said they are currently on 2:20 pace.

At the 5k mark Gwen is in the second pack with the other US runner at 1:12 back from the lead. Estimated finish is 2:31:46 at the moment.

Yeah - would have been stupid to try staying with the leaders and have a real bad 2nd half of the race.

What's up with most of the men wearing the same shoes? Are these the vapor fly knit whatever? The pink shoes.

Doesn’t she always negative-split her races, or is she out of it?

See that another triathlete named Jorgensen is running - Lars Jorgensen, who has held the Kona swim course record for 20 years.

Is the tracker working for others?

Not sure about whether she neg splits but I don't think anyone has ever thought she would ever be "in it" for this race. It would be suicide for her to try to stay with the Africans. She's where she needs to be for this race, in the second pack.

Tracker working “on-and-off”.

At10k Gwen is 2:30 down ... I guess top 10 is still in the picture

At the 15k mark Gwen seems to be losing touch with the other Americans and is 12 seconds back.

At the half way mark it looks like Laura Thweatt has pulled out. Leading the Americans is Sara Crouch at 1:15:10 with Gwen as third American at 1:15:48. In between is Taylor Ward at 1:15:37.

according to the tracker it seems that Gwen is getting dropped and also that there's not another pack behind her to run with, so she'll be running alone for the 2nd half.

Too bad, I was hoping for Gwensanity.

Just saw her on the course between 20 and 25k. She is running with a group of men with 2 other American women a few seconds up front and running alone.

Gwen looks solid and focused, albeit a bit labored.

At 25k she's lost even more time (about 10-12 secs) but she's got a couple of women with her now.

I don't see how this bodes well for her training or her psyche... she's going to fade to a 2:36 which is nowhere near where she wants or needs to be. Wouldn't it have been better to run with the lead pack until she couldn't and then pull the plug?

Definitely not, I think today is mainly about getting her ticket to Atlanta and not losing too much on the back half. She knows that her shape is no where near where it needs to be, but after today she will have a lot more experience and her qualifier done.
