In an absolutely insane performance in Chicago, Kelvin Kiptum just ran the fastest official marathon of all time. Sub 2 hour is next I'm sure. A well-deserved honor for this young Kenyan and my hearty congratulations.
Runners LOVE Chicago. The marathon course is both flat and fast. Here's my view as I got underway in the 2019 Chicago Marathon.
What happy memories but nothing like the ones Kiptum will have. Glorious day for runners and for the sport!
