The event was a one off event put together by NIKE, I do believe the 25 seconds will be enough motivation and show that it can be done, that there will be runners who will try to go for it during the fall racing season. My guess will be either Berlin or Chicago with its flat courses. If the weather is cool enough someone might just go for it.

BTW: the average pace for the 26.2 was 4:35 min/mile.

Lol, I don't think he will be all the heartbroken, he does have the gold medal from the Rio Olympics in the marathon.

The amount of work given to make this happen was crazy.

Eliud Kipchoge, just finished running the marathon distance of 26.2 in 2:00:24; while not a world record because it was done under conditions including pacers being replaced and a race track came within seconds of being the first person to finish the distance in under 2 hours. Nike spent 2 years on this Breaking2 project and it almost happened. What it proves is that the human body can operate at high efficiency and stress for the distance. The 2 hour mark is the long distance equivelant of breaking the 4 minute mile. Nike chose the date of May 6th as it was on May 6th, 1954 that Sir Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile mark. Even though Elite didn't succeed ( a total of 3 runners started the attempt with the other 2 dropping) it is still a remarkable accomplishment. For this track and field nerd this was amazing to watch.

Still one of the best moments I have ever watched in baseball from a non baseball fan.

Those are great right and you have to be watching live to get the full effect. I still remember Kirk Gibson's pinch hit HR in the World Series.

Ichiro Suzuki returned to Seattle with the Florida Marlins for a three game series. In the ninth inning of the second game, during what most people expect to be his last at bat ever in Seattle, he hit a solo homer over the left field fence. The place went nuts. Standing ovation.

The guy who caught the ball returned it and was given an autographed bat in exchange by Ichiro. Apparently he was a huge fan and was really tickled by being able to meet the former Seattle star.

What a moment.

Any other team and I would have been right there with the Zags. It wouldn't have hurt too much losing to them this time either. I remember them shocking everyone in the mid 90's. They have built a great program from nothing.

Happy for you BLM but it's sort of like watching the Yankees win the world series. Stalwart powerhouse wins again. Now the poor old zags have to go back to (yech) Spokane. And without a trophy. Sad.
