After an astounding career on the roads of the world, Ryan Hall announced his retirement. His accolades include the fastest marathon ever run by an American (2:04:58), the half-marathon American Record (59:43), and multiple top-5 finishes on some of the biggest stages in the world. Below is a collection of messages from AthleteBiz athletes and a tribute video from ASICS.
I’d like to congratulate @ryanhall3 on a great career. Ryan has accomplished so much & has been a great friend. I wish him the very best!!!

When @ryanhall3 announces his 1st marathon, he most certainly won’t tell you to “go down to your local track”. Gonna miss ya out there.
