By Larry Eder, RunBlogRun.com
In the 1960s and early 1970s, San Jose was the home of some of the most brilliant sprinters of all times. Many of them were coached and mentored by the late Bud Winter. Winter had honed his skills in WW2 teaching pilots how to relax for the long fighter flights and bomber flights over Germany.

Winter took those skills and used them to teach the long sprinters, those over 200 meters and 400 meters, how to use their talents to relax and run faster.

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge again proved himself to be the pre-eminent marathon racer of recent years when he won the 2015 BMW Berlin Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race, in a 2015 world-leading time of 2:04:00 on Sunday (27).

Kipchoge, the 2013 5000m world champion on the track, took his record to five wins out of six marathon outings since his victorious debut over the classic distance when he won at the 2013 Hamburg Marathon.

Kipchoge_EliudH-Berlin13-thumb-500xauto-13693.jpgAt 9am on Sunday morning, 40,000 runners will line up in Berlin's Tiergarten for the 41st edition of the world's fastest marathon and with a typically stellar trio of athletes heading up the men's field, there's every chance Dennis Kimetto's world record of 2:02:57 will be rewritten.

If so, it will be sixth time in the last nine editions of the race that the men's record has been broken and if it is to happen, then it will undoubtedly be one of the power three - Eliud Kipchoge, Emmanuel Mutai or Geoffrey Mutai - who achieve it.
