Parker Stinson on his "meltdown":

Believe in yourself even when no one else does. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Today I tested my limits in my marathon debut. Today I found out my limits were 22 miles at 2:09:55 pace before some severe abdominal cramps and a right calve strain had me walking to the finish line. Next time I'm hoping to make it farther as there are no awards handed out to people for winning 90% of a race. However, I stand by what I said before the race...and I wouldn't change a thing. #YOLO

:motherofgod: :motherofgod: :motherofgod:

yup.. it's absolutely incredible.

and the improvement of Moen is incredible. If you get bored, wonder what his 100m's improved to, going from 2:12:47 to 2:05:48 :D :ninja: :highfive: :ibrunning:



I was putting it into perspective for my Aunt yesterday .. I was telling her that the guy who won yesterday's 1 mile race @ 4:33, well, the best marathoner in the world (Kipchoge) runs 26.2 miles at basically that pace (4:35) (2:00:32 for breaking2).

she wuz like. wot.

Performance of the week: SONDRE MOEN - EUROPEAN MARATHON RECORD
🇳🇴
On Sunday in Japan at the Fukuoka International Marathon, Norway’s Sondre Moen took the tape in 2.05:48 and became the first European to run a 2.05 Marathon.
🇳🇴
Moen’s race win and European Record is our performance of the week.
🇳🇴
Moen has been in fantastic shape in recent months having run a sub 28minute road 10k in September followed by a Norwegian record over Half Marathon in October in Valencia when he ran under the 1hour barrier clocking 59:48.
🇳🇴
He is a favourite of ours at The Kenya Experience as he completes much of his training in Iten, under the tutelage of Renato Canova, so we were delighted to see this breakthrough performance.
🇳🇴
The race on Sunday morning followed the planned 3’00”/km pace throughout the first 30km which was reached right on 3minute average pace. At that point pre race favourite Bedan Karoki of Kenya made a move and increased the pace into the mid 2’50’s. Moen went with him and it ended up being he, rather than the Kenyan who continued to push the pace in the latter stages of the race.
🇳🇴
Running the 29:16 for the 10km from 30-40 was more than enough to do irreparable damage to Karoki, who faded and was passed by Uganda’s 2012 Olympic Champion Stephen Kiprotich and Japan’s Suguru Osako in the latter stages of the race, and set Moen up for the win. The question then became how fast could the Norwegian man go, and in running the final 2.2k in 6:24 he ensured his name is now forever in the record books as the first European athlete to break the 2:06 barrier.
🇳🇴
Race Results:
1 Sondre Nordstad Moen (NOR) 2:05:48
2 Stephen Kiprotich (UGA) 2:07:10
3 Suguru Osako (JPN) 2:07:19
4 Bedan Karoki (KEN) 2:08:44
5 Ammanuel Mesel (ERI) 2:09:22
6 Daisuke Uekado (JPN) 2:09:27
7 Yoshiki Takenouchi (JPN) 2:10:01
8 Michael Githae (KEN) 2:10:46
9 Yuki Kawauchi (JPN) 2:10:53
10 Takuya Fukatsu (JPN) 2:12:04

"IMO, It didn't happen if it's not on vid/official"- adarqui

It's easier to keep up than it is to catch up...

weird, no record of Mo Farah in the results for Doha half .. thought he did that today.

edit: "Mo Farah was due to run in the half-marathon event but reportedly pulled out with an Achilles issue."

damn !! :/

Allie Keiffer won the women's half and set a course record.. man she's on a tear.

Naples Half Marathon
- Found out Parker Stinson is running it .. curious to see how he does.
- A bunch of local people are running it, since it's not too far away (2 hours or so).

Houston Half & Full Marathon
- Hoping Jake Robertson & Bernard Lagat do great
- Also hoping Hasay sets the US half record .. Hasay vs Huddle tomorrow for the US.

Need to find some twitter feeds so I can follow during my down time.
