I felt great early on. Training had gone really well. My body felt good until about 17 miles, then I started getting spasms in my hamstrings. I had to check off a little bit and those three got away. I was just trying to hold it together.
Somebody told me I was 39 seconds back, but then at about 24 miles somebody in the crowd told me Abdi was dropping back. I started to gain but I didn’t have enough time to catch up.
(Before the hamstring spasms) I was very comfortable at the pace we were running.
