Is a Sub 2 Hour Marathon Possible?
'Without doubt I will see a two-hour marathon in my lifetime,' Bedford, who is 58, says. 'It might be towards the end of my life. It might be another 20 years. But, yes, it will definitely happen.' -David Bedford, former 10K world record holder
Interesting views presented at guardian.co.uk on what it will take to break 2 hours in the marathon- a mind boggling average of 4 min 34.8 seconds per mile (Hallie Gebrselassie averaged 4 min 44 seconds per mile in his recent 2 hr 03 min 59 sec world record run).
