hah this is beast, the former world record holder basically wants to quit after makau pulls away from him at 16 miles..

"Makau pulled away after 27 kilometers (16.8 miles) and finished in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 38 seconds.
Haile Gebrselassie of Ethiopia, who held the previous record of 2:03.59, pulled up after Makau's breakaway and seemed on the verge of giving up when he stopped running and bent over, but resumed the race."

The times they are running these days are crazy low (to me).  When I was running the Orange Bowl marathon back in 1980/81 the world record was around 2:09-2:10 and the experts were saying it would be really hard to get much lower.  Ha!!  7min faster is around 1/4 of a min faster for every stinkin mile for 26+ mi in a row for over 2hrs straight.  Totally different league/caliber of athlete.  Most of the top marathoners I followed back then were running about 70-75sec qrtrs during their interval training.  Now they're prob running 60-65's.

Just 2, OB in 1980,81.  Didn't finish the 1st due to insufficient training, finished the 2nd in ~3:15, 7:30 pace or so.  Nothing fast, just wanted to finish.  This was during the nationwide 'running boom', when it seems everybody was doing lsd running, see Forest Gump for details.

Makau put himself in an excellent position by halfway, blew the race wide open with an incredible sixth interval of 14:20 (25 to 30km), and then hung on to the finish. 

he ran a 14:20 5k after ALREADY HAVING RUN 25K.

 :huh:
