New records

The chip results are in from Bellingham:

Sean - 1:55:36 (5:46 PR improvement)

Tami - 2:03:26 (4:09 PR improvement)

A new world record for the marathon was also set by Haile Gebrselassie in Berlin on Sunday. He improved his own world record by 27 seconds to 2:03:59.

As I mentioned last year, my current marathon and half marathon goals are to run them in twice the world record time. I have now met my half marathon goal by beating the time of 1:57:06. Now I need to cut 11:14 off my marathon time. Next shot is early next year.
