Want to run fast? Go to Germany!

Yesterday during the Frankfurt Marathon, Wilson Kipsang of Kenya missed breaking the World Record by an agonizing 4 seconds failing to beat Patrick Makau’s time which was set five weeks ago in Berlin. Wilson ran the race in a time of 2:03:42.

The only other legal sub 2 hour 4 minute marathon was run by Haile Gebselassie also in Berlin.

So, looking to run a personal best? Germany may be the place to do it!
