WHOA

Anyone see this?


From the A.P.:

"Haile Gebrselassie broke his own marathon world record Sunday, becoming the first runner to finish under 2 hours, 4 minutes.

The Ethiopian clocked 2:03:59 to win his third straight Berlin Marathon, beating the mark of 2:04:26 he set last year over the same flat course. He also became the first runner to win the race three times. "


For those of you that aren't as geeky as me, that is an average of a 4.69 minute mile. I can't run that fast for ONE mile, let alone 26.2. This man is absolutely amazing. What a wonderful athlete that my children can look up to.

Has anyone seen the movie Endurance about him? I'd love to find it, but it's not on DVD (and the VHS is rather expensive). =(
