The Little Emperor Does it Again - 2:03:59

This is truly amazing!  Halie Gebreselassie does it again in Berlin, running a new marathon world record of 2:03:59. Very dramatic just creeping under the 2:04 mark, and still inspirational.  I think he ran his first half in 1:02:04, then came back like a mad man.  I can't even image running a half marathon in that time. Most Americans can't even do that! But it still gives me hope to improve my times and push the limits of human capabilities.  Truly, truly amazing!  It is a great time to be a runner and a part of this running movement or running boom or golden age of running, or whatever term they are calling it now...
