Mutai runs fastest marathon ever to win Boston Marathon

The headline:  Geoffrey Mutai wins Boston Marathon

The link:  http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/news/story?id=6381520

The summary:  Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai wins the 2011 Boston Marathon in a time of 2:03:02 – the fastest marathon time ever recorded.

The reaction:  I’m a bit of an amateur runner and I can’t hold that kind of pace for a quarter mile let alone a full 26.2 mile marathon course.

Say what you will about competitive runners but for my money these guys are some of the best athletes in the world bar none!
