“Don’t ask me how I am. It’s very special, spectacular.”

That’s what Haile Gebreselassie said after breaking the marathon world record last Sunday in Berlin.

As most of you know by now, Haile clocked in at 2 hours, 4 minutes, 26 seconds. He broke Paul Tergat’s 4 year old record of 2:04:55 by 29 seconds.

This was Haile’s 25th world record! Congratulations brother (in running, I mean!)
