ironman-logo-iconThis has been a great week for running-related records

  1. Brigid Kosgei got a world marathon record in Chicago, finishing in 2:14:04 and knocking over one minute from the previous record which was the longest-lasting marathon record in the modern era (P Radcliffe)

  2. Eliud Kipchoge was the first human to run a marathon time trial in under 2 hours at 1:59:40. I watched the last 30 minutes of that live on Youtube and was amazed at how effortless he made it look…especially the last km sprint. Some of us could run a km in under 3 minutes or maybe at that pace for a minuteor so…he can run faster than that speed for 2 hours.
  3. Anne Haug clocked an impressive 8:40:10 (2nd fastest-ever winning time) to win Kona from 2019 Challenge Roth champion Lucy Charles-Barclay (edit)
  4. Jan Frodeno produced a record time of 7:51:13, also at Kona beating some relatively close finishers two minutes behind.
  5. With the winding up of the Nike Oregon Project, we wonder how many previous records might possibly, eventually be removed from the record books

LCB wasn’t reigning champion. That would be Ryf.
