so all 47 started the 48th yard.
no one was in any apparent trouble coming out of 47,
so it seems likely they will all make it.
what makes it sweetest is the performances of the women.
all 4 are still in it.
all 4 are on the way to getting sub 48 hour 200 milers in the same race.
two of them are over 50
and another over 40.
