Gebrselassie does it – new world record!

30 09 2007

This is shaping up to be an amazing day for distance running.

More on the Toronto Waterfront festivities later (there’s brunch to be eaten, after all), but the shocker out of Berlin is that there’s a new men’s marathon world record.

Haile Gebrselassie pounded out a 2:04:26 this morning to shave almost 30 seconds off Paul Tergat’s top time of 2003. Hoo-rah! What a feather in his cap after a distinguished career on the track.

More later.

Now it’s time for bacon and eggs. Would you think less of me if I have a Sam Adams before noon today?

* More T.O. Waterfront coverage
