New World Record

Post  Michele "1L" Keane on Sun Sep 29, 2013 12:31 pm

Well, he was true to his word as he said all week he would break the record, and he did.  Desiree Davila was 5th in her comeback race in a time of 2:29.

*Yawn!* He sure didn't break the old record by much did he? Slacker. Wink

(I'll be impressed when they finally break two hours...)

And good job, Desi!

How true - I just have to shake my head when I see how fast they are going over this distance.
