Mary Keitany in the last two years had no peers in the 1/2 marathon; therefore, it was no surprise she destroyed the 25km world record today. The stunner is how much she destroyed the record by with an over 2 minute improvement.
In Mary Keitany's run today she become the first women to run sub 1:20 for 25km.
In 2006 she became the 3rd women to run a 1/2 marathon under 1:07 club. Joining 1/2 marathon WR Lornah Kiplagat and South Africa retired star Elana Meyer; however, they only accomplished the feat once in their careers. Mary Keitany in 2009 ran three incredible 1/2 marathons in the span of three months:
1.) Do you think Mary Keitany is the lady to take down Paula Radcliffe mindbogging world record of 2:15:25 from 2001?
2.) Mary Keitany will make her marathon debut in the fall, what would you predict her time to be in her marathon debut?
