Olympic marathon runner and 2001 Big Bear High School graduate Ryan Hall was among 10,000 runners in yesterday’s 13.1 mile New York City Half-Marathon, which was said to be the most competitive in the race’s four-year history. The ultimate winner in the professional men’s category was 2008 winner Tadese Tola of Ethiopia, though Hall, the American half-marathon record holder, took third place, missing the second spot on the podium by just three seconds with an overall time of 1:02:35. At the awards ceremony in New York City, 26-year-old Hall noted, “It was a good race”–and, referencing the New York City Marathon on November 1, he added, “Can’t wait to be back. We’re gonna roll it out!”
