L.A. Marathon: After 20 miles, Markos Geneti is in the lead

Ethiopia's Markos Geneti has pulled away from the pack and is all alone with a time of 1 hour, 35 minutes and 18 seconds after 20 miles.

Geneti ran a 4:50 for Mile 16, 4:53 for Mile 17, 4:49 for Mile 18, 4:39 for Mile 19 and 4:51 for Mile 20. 

Geneti passed the women at 9:18 a.m. in what was the earliest pass in the history of the L.A. Marathon. He's projected to finish in 2:04:49, which would smash the race record.

On the women's side, Amy Hastings is still in the lead.

Mile 20 ended at Sepulveda Boulevard, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard.
