2016 Nog Club flip flop run - photo from the Nog Run Club.jpgFor the last two summers, troupes of fashionable Raleigh, NC runners have jogged, high-stepped, shuffled and done whatever it took under blazing summer skies to break the Guinness World Record for the most runners to complete a 1K run wearing flip flops.

National Flip Flop Day, held on the third Friday in June, provides the perfect backdrop for the popular event, which has broken the world record two years in a row, in 2015 and 2016. It is sponsored by the popular Nog Run Club in Raleigh.

Bekele-KipsangH1a-Berlin16-thumb-500xauto-21342.jpgIn April 2014, I flew to the City of Love, Paris, to see Kenenisa Bekele run his first marathon. I had seen Bekele race on the track over most of his career.

His debut in Paris was pretty good. His 2:05 was a strong debut. Kenenisa did have some trouble in the last 18, 19 mile area, when he went too fast for a kilometer and had some calve soreness.

Bekele falls-thumb-500xauto-21259.jpgThe Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon is fast, but it is bad luck for one Kenenisa Bekele. In the 2017 version, Kenenisa falls at the start, which manager Jos Hermans claims was a surprise start, and Bekele was bloodied before the battle began.

Bekele was behind by 10k, and by 22 k, he was out of the race. The front pack went out in 61:33. The early pace had been 14:26 for 5k, 23:08 for 8k and 28:58 for 10k. The 10k was passed in 2:02:13 pace.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Jordan Hasay crushed her first half marathon in 1:08:40, the fastest by an American woman and No. 6 U.S. all time in the Aramco Houston Half Marathon.

Hasay’s time was less than one minute short of the American record (1:07:34), proving her strength as a serious contender in the half marathon. The Oregon Project runner’s fourth-place finish put her behind winner Veronicah Wanjiru Nyaruai, Dera Dida Yami and 2016 champion Mary Wacera.

1. Few care about the two hour marathon. Most runners could absolutely care less about the chase for the two hour marathon. In the running community, marathon numbers seem to be down a bit, with half marathon numbers continuing to improve. With an average marathon time of 4 hours 45 minutes, anyone under 3 hours is superhuman to them. The citizen runners are impressed with runners from Ethiopia, Kenya and local fast runners, but the two hour marathon means little or nothing to the general running populace.
