World's fastest marathoner gives advice on how to run really fast for 26.2 miles
Posted Apr 16 2009 11:02pm
With the Boston marathon just around the corner, we thought you might appreciate a few tips on how to run your fastest marathon ever.
So we asked somebody who should know.
As you may be aware 36-year-old Ethopian superstar Haile Gebrselassie recently broke his own world record when running the Berlin Marathon. His time of 2:03:59 was 27 seconds quicker than his previous best.
So it comes as no surprise that Gebrselassie knows a thing or two about running the 26.2 miles fast---very fast.
And yes, we didn' t actually have a sit down chat with Gebrselassie to ask him how he does it. But we did track down this video of him giving advice just before the up coming London marathon (which he has run three times) to a British reported---which is almost as good we believe.
