Quote Of The Day
“Well, I enjoyed Nike’s Breaking2 exhibition more than I thought I would but it was still missing a lot of the essential elements that make racing attractive—namely, a race, more than two other competitors, droves of spectators, an interesting course and a slew of other variables that might affect the final outcome. So, it’s with giddy anticipation that I await this Sunday’s Berlin Marathon where three of the greatest marathoners (heck, runners) in history—Eliud Kipchoge, Wilson Kipsang and Kenenisa Bekele—will duke it out with one another on the world’s fastest ratified course and give chase to Dennis Kimetto’s 2:02:57 world record. Will they get it? I don’t know, and I almost don’t care. I just want to see what happens after the pacers step off the course…”
