Yomif Kejelcha is going for the indoor mile WR soon.. :wowthatwasnutswtf:

This looks like it's going to be a sick (short) documentary, hope they release the full vid eventually.

and man he can fly.. look at that speed. he can chase mile WR's AND he's gone like 59:1X in the half marathon.. that is some incredible range. This is the kind of stuff that can also make for a WR-level marathoner eventually (ie Kipchoge style).

That is crazy. It would have been an interesting log entry:

Run 5km
Choke out mountain lion
Run 5km
Cooldown/Stretch

https://runningmagazine.ca/sections/runs-races/mike-wardian-and-susannah-gill-win-world-marathon-challenge/

mike wardian wins the 7 marathons 7 continents 7 days challenge.

Quote
Mike Wardian of Arlington, Virginia and Susannah Gill of Great Britain have won the World Marathon Challenge, which took place on seven continents over the last seven days. Wardian finished the final marathon, in Miami, last night in 2:53:03. Gill finished in 3:26:34, winning all but the first of the seven marathons (she was second in Antarctica on January 31), setting a new world record in the process, with an average finishing time of 3:28. (The previous women’s record of 3:55 was held by Becca Pizzi of Belmont, Mass.) Wardian holds the world record for men, of 2:45, from 2017.

im really confused tho.... there was a marathon in Miami last night? wtf?

17:15 <@run> OMFG a pacer just collapsed, pacing a mile or something
17:15 <@run> and might be dying
17:15 <@run> on nbc
17:15 <@run> milrose games

they had to "shock him" with an IED... dude that's not good.

:(

hope somehow he doesn't die that is insane.



edit: the shotputters were praying.. :/



edit: they stretchered him off with oxygen/shirt off/blanket covering most of him. he didn't look good. fuck that is awful. really hoping he is ok.

i actually think about that happening to me quite often.. heart can just give out whenever. freaky to think about. :/
