Good lord that's fast!

Haile Gebrselassie of Ethiopia (don't ask me to pronounce it) broke the world record in the 10-K road race, winning a cool $1-million, clocking in at 27:11 (which is still a minute slower than he's done on the track). Generally, Geb usually does track races (holding the world record in the 5,000 and 10,000), but obviously money talks. But the guy can run twomiles in 8 minutes, 3 miles in 12:12 (and he did that en-route to his 5,000 world record).

Let's see, the best I've ever run in a 10K on the road was 33:40 or so -- so he would've finished a mile-and-a-half ahead of me, on my BEST day. Yikes that's fast.
