It was really an unbelievable accomplishment! What can I say….
The thing that really impressed me, though, was his humbleness and character. And the message that beginning from running we can try to make this world more beautiful and peaceful!

It was an incredible feat, however I suspect it may be a while still before it happen in real racing conditions – though having said that many barriers are mental so now someone’s proved its possible…..
Sad to see it totally overshadowing the breaking of the womens marathon record in real race conditions in Chicago on Sunday though 🙁

Very hard to believe that anyone could run at that speed for that distance. However, once Bannister did the 4 min mile, several other runners did the same within weeks, once they ‘knew’ it was possible. Be interesting to see if anyone can do it under race conditions soon.
