"Makau produces second fastest time ever, Tune clocks national record at RAK Half Marathon"

Patrick Makau won the RAK Half Marathon with an amazing time of 58:52. That's a 4:29 min mile pace. At the 5k mark he had a time of 13:40! That's amazing, and at the 10k mark, 27:42. That's 38 secounds off the American Record of a 10k. He is a prodigy in distance running. Makau said, "I think the conditions were perfect and I am really very happy with the result." And I sometimes wounder if people like Patrick Makau or Ryan Hall will become ultramarathon prodigy's? And would they do good in a Ultra?
