    In a tune-up for their Olympic marathon in August, Oakley’s Meb Keflezighi and Ryan Hall showcased their dominance of the US distance running field at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in San Diego. Keflezighi and Hall are two of the three members of the US Marathon team, already qualified for the 26.2-mile event in London this summer. Fans are getting used to the sight of Keflezighi and Hall finishing 1-2 in events in which they both compete. Keflezighi topped Hall at the US Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston, TX in January, both earning a spot in London.
