Thank you, London
Here at LetsRun.com HQ, it feels a bit like a bunch of eight-year-olds on December 23. The day we've been looking forward to all year -- the 2020 London Marathon -- is just two sleeps away. We see all those shiny presents under the tree -- Eliud Kipchoge! Kenenisa Bekele! Brigid Kosgei! -- and can't help but get excited about what Christmas -- ahem -- Sunday morning has in store.

Boston, Berlin, Chicago, and New York may all have fallen by the wayside, and they'll all be missed. But this race, with Kipchoge vs. Bekele, was the one the sport couldn't afford to lose. And the incredible folks at the London Marathon made it happen, showing why -- with apologies to the aforementioned majors -- it is the world's greatest marathon.

Sunday's races will require an early wakeup call for American fans -- the women go off at 2:15 a.m. EDT, the men at 5:15 -- but that's a tradeoff we're willing to make for the first major marathon in seven months. Who can sleep before Christmas morning anyway?
