      rupp did fabulous! but my favourite thing about watching the marathon was Kipchoge's SMILES during the last 2.5 kms. What?! He just looked so relaxed and loving it, so impressive. I mean, I'm sure it helped that he knew he was pretty likely to win the gold, but still, anything but sheer pain on someone's face in the last few kms of a marathon is just amazing to me! ;)
