Marathon – wow!

“Eliud Kipchoge became the first person to run a marathon in under two hours, clocking in at 1:59:40 as he passed the finish line Saturday morning in Vienna, Austria. “It has taken 65 years for a human being to make history in sport, after Roger Bannister made history in 1954,” Kipchoge, who’s Kenyan, said.” Bannister was breaking the 4 minute mile of course. Hey, this 4.5 minutes for 26 miles is no big deal: we did our first marathon at lower than three hours and forty one minutes, almost as fast as Eliud Kipchoge if you subtract our coffee breaks.

    Hope the Dinocrat’s hips are holding up under the strain of all the running. I know of more than one runner that has needed hip replacement after years of pounding the pavement.
