It has been an inspiring couple of weeks in the sporting world. I started running a couple of months ago so I feel like I understand it a bit more now. Eliud Kipchoge just became the first athlete to run a marathon in under two hours.
To put this into context: There are 1,704 parkruns in the world. Kiphoge’s slowest 5km split of 14:14 would set a course record at… 1,693 of them. And another: Only five of the 51,363,611 parkruns ever completed have been faster than his target pace. Incredible. 🤯
