LetsRun.com Weekly
Fall marathon season is here. And it's starting with a good one on Sunday as Eliud Kipchoge and Keira D'Amato are chasing records and the victory in Berlin.

Yes, Kipchoge and D'Amato already own those records (the men's world and women's American, respectively). So perhaps that's not worth rising at 3:15 in the morning to watch live from the States. But Kipchoge and D'Amato are hoping to do more than shave a second or two off their existing marks. Both will hope to put their marks out of sight for the foreseeable future.

Kipchoge's 2:01:39 in Berlin in 2018 seemed immortal...for all of a year, when Kenenisa Bekele ran 2:01:41. And D'Amato already knows, with a crop of women like Sara Hall, Molly Seidel, Emily Sisson, and Emma Bates on her heels, that if she doesn't take the AR under 2:19 soon, somebody else will. D'Amato also has the added motivation of chasing victory in Berlin (something virtually assured for Kipchoge), which is a big deal considering she's never won a major and no American has ever won Berlin.

So that's what's at stake on Sunday. And if you still don't feel like watching live, don't worry. We've got you. Head to LetsRun.com Sunday morning and we'll have a live post-race video reaction show to recap everything for those who chose to slept in (streaming details TBD, but we'll start at a reasonable hour for East Coasters). Or you can join our Supporters Club and receive it on-demand as a podcast.

Either way, happy fall! And happy fall marathon season!
