Almost 1 year ago, 2 heavy weights of marathoning went head to head and produced an astonishing race which put them at numbers 2 and 4 on the all time list. . The event was the Berlin Marathon and Kenenisa Bekele took the win in 2:03:03 and Kenya's Wilson Kipsang came home just 10seconds beating his PB which was previously the world record. . It was a race for the ages but many commented that 1 ingredient was missing which would have potentially made it the greatest race of all time. . That ingredient was Eliud Kipchoge. Who was in recovery mode having recently added the Olympic Gold Medal to his resume. . Well, fast forward one year and we are now just days away from seeing that dream race materialise. . This Sunday the Berlin Marathon brings Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele and Kenya's Wilson Kipsang and Eliud Kipchoge together in a marathon for the first time. . All three have won this race before. All three have been described (with justification) as the greatest of all time. . Now they will go head to head to head on one of the fastest marathon courses on the circuit. . We will have more pre Berlin coverage during the week as the excitement builds for one of the most anticipated marathons of a generation.
It was a dark and stormy night....πŸπŸ˜œπŸ‚ just kidding, it was a typical Oregon fall morning - rain and chilly πŸ‘ŒπŸ»βœ…πŸ’―πŸ’¦ I had another recovery run today which was sooooo wonderful and tomorrow: more marathon pace practice!! #runhappy #running #marathon #marathontraining #chicagomarathon #runcim #cim2017 #amrunner #morningrunner #whereirun #pacnw #mizuno #womensrunningcommunity

#Repost @blululovestorun ( @get_repost) ・・・ #transformationtuesday Looking back to my first half marathon last October in Manchester. Training went well, it was a flat course, i was aiming for 2.15 and managed to surprise myself and pull 2.04 out of the bag. I found it hard but enjoyable. Then came a trail half in February which i did 'for fun' and chipped a bit more off my Manchester pb with 2:01:54. . . After Liverpool Rock n Roll marathon I knew i had to work at getting some speed back and after an unstructured month I started a 12 week training block for English Half Marathon in Warrington with the goal of going #sub2. I chose to follow Hal Higdon Intermediate 2 plan which had a midweek speed or tempo session a race pace practice on the weekend. . . I must admit I didn't even check the elevation for EHM before deciding this was to be the sub 2 attempt πŸ™ˆand was more than a little nervous on the day. I was so glad it went better than expected on the day and am immensely proud of my 1:55:10! . . #EHM #warrington #manchester #halfmarathontraining #goals #fitnessgoals #trainingplan #workforit #trainhard #achieveit #motivation #runner #runnerslife #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #igrunners #irunthisbody #whereirun #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #womenrunners

I cannot bear running in the heat, so first run after a long summer break 🌞 I don't mind the cold weather ❄ and for me there is something magical about running in the rain especially in the 'Domaine Saint Cloud'. πŸƒπŸ—Όβ˜” #womansfitness #whereirun #womenshealth #womenrunning #nikerun #nikerunning #iloverunning #runlikeagirl #runningwoman
Eunice Chumba made it Bahraini double in Copenhagen as the former Kenyan athlete scorched to victory in 66:11. . Kenyan Joan Chelimo was 2nd in 66:25. . This highlights a shift we are currently witnessing in Kenyan female running where 66/67 minute half marathon clocking are now becoming common place. . 66 seems to be what 68/69 was 10years ago with 12different athletes already running sub 67 so far this year. (8Kenyan's, 3Bahrani's and 1 Ethiopian). . By contrast in 2007 only 13 runners broke 69minutes in the entire year.
There was a lot of fast road racing across Europe this past weekend but the highlight was surely in Copenhagen where former Kenyan (now Bahrain) Abraham Cheroben led 3 men under the 59 minute barrier. . Yes you read that correctly, under the 59minute barrier. . Cheroben is well known for his road exploits, given that his time of 58:40 which makes him the 3rd fastest in history was only an 8second PB. . Top 10 results courtesy of IAAF: Men 1 Abraham Cheroben (BRN) 58:40 2 Jorum Lumbasi Okombo (KEN) 58:48 3 Alex Oloitiptip Korio (KEN) 58:51 4 Albert Kipkosgei Kangogo (KEN) 59:25 5 Leonard Barsoton (KEN) 59:28 6 Moses Martin Kurong (UGA) 59:50 7 Geoffrey Kimutai Koech (KEN) 59:50 8 Shura Kitata (ETH) 1:00:10 9 Geoffrey Yegon (KEN) 1:00:16 10 Abrar Osman (ERI) 1:00:19

This is the first run in a while that I actually wanted to do! Found a new horse today. This farm has a brown mare and a black male. Today the black wasn't there, but this white one was. I'm calling him Spike because he reminds me of the @bostonmarathon unicorn! πŸ¦„ (I hope the black one's still around...) #seenonmyrun Β  #running #runnersofinstagram #runwisconsin Β  #ultramarathontraining #uncomfortzone #marathontraining #whereirun #runnerscommunity #glutenfreerunner #horses #horsesofinstagram #rural #country #countrylife
