Molinaro highlighted this accomplishment in his Friday summation in the Pilot sports section.
For us more senior citizens, the recollection of a Brit named Roger Bannister comes to mind. He broke the 4 minute mile in 1954.
Was the human body capable of anything more?
Evidently. The current record for a single mile is 3:43.
And Kipchoge ran 26 consecutive miles at 4:34 per mile. About the same pace as rush hour on I-64 on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Or any other rush hour for that matter.
Enough diversion. Back to reality.
