Kipchoge not in it (getting ready for 1:59). Bekele is back tho. hope he doesn't DNF and has a sick race.

still can't believe it. incredible.

imagine if he got that WR? he'd have the current 5k, 10k, and marathon WR's.

he's the greatest runner of all time, that's for sure. Kipchoge is still the greatest marathon runner of all time. I'd love to see them battle it out again soon.

also, I ordered this singlet last week, good decision -> it's been worn for the marathon WR, half marathon WR, and now second fastest marathon ever. :ninja: :ninja: :ninja: :ibrunning:

btw, 2nd place went under 2:03.

pretty crazy.

it's kind of odd but then, not so much. women haven't been smashing records, but dudes have been. you'd think if it was the shoes helping this much, that it'd benefit the women as well.

https://olympics.nbcsports.com/2019/09/29/berlin-marathon-results/

1st through 3rd ran crazy times. then 4th is 2:06:45.

Bekele wasn't even in the lead the whole race.. he had to catch Lemma & Legese (who was running out of his mind, on WR pace). Then Bekele eventually drops Legese at ~35 KM and maintains WR pace, Legese drops off a bit but still goes under 2:03 (which is a very big deal).

The fact that 3 guys were on WR pace @ ~35 km is nuts tho.. When Kipchoge got his WR last year, he dropped everyone at like 20km or something.

marathon is changing.

he'd have the current 5k, 10k, and marathon WR.
