Can Meb still contend for a major marathon title, or are the 36-year-old’s best days behind him? The 2009 New York City Marathon champion and 2004 Olympic Marathon silver medalist will be the perennial crowd favorite in the Big Apple, but he’ll have his hands full attempting a second win against one of the most competitive fields in the race’s history. Keflezighi has had a quiet year of racing, so all eyes will be watching if he goes for broke in NYC or saves himself for the U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon on Jan. 14.
