Yeah, I saw this story on my FB feed. Crazy fast!

I usually volunteer as a course marshall for the Twin Cities Marathon in October and have been stationed with the same team for the past few years along the 3rd mile. (We start just past the Mile 2 flag.)

When we're done, I go cheer at mile 24. The elite runners, like the gentleman in the story, look the same at Mile 24 as they do along the 3rd mile. It's amazing.

Meanwhile, I am happy with my post-surgery just under 45 minute 5k that includes a lot of walking, :-) I am just a regular human runner.

With some short jogging sprints mixed into my walking, I can usually keep my 5k time under an hour. I was pretty happy with that until I read this:

Now I see room for improvement!
