I see Shalane Flanagan is going for all 6 this year (with a bit of an asterisk against Tokyo).

She's already done Berlin 2:38, London 2:35, then this weekend it was Chicago 2:46 and Boston 2:40 the next day. Tokyo has to be virtual unfortunately, but then New York in early November. Nice challenge, and good to see she is running them with a good bit of pace, rather than cruising around in 2:50-3:00.

That is quite impressive - particularly the Chicago Boston back to back. Shame she couldn't get Tokyo as well.

Mine will be spread out over a number of years - allowing bank balance recovery in between ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
