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