    Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge smashes two-hour marathon barrier





    (CNN)Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge has successfully completed the first ever marathon under two hours in the Austrian capital of Vienna, two years since he fell 25 seconds short.

    The 34-year-old ran the 26.2 miles in 1 hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds at Vienna's Prater-Hauptallee (main avenue) -- an achievement considered one of the ultimate milestones in athletic performance.

    He was running like people were chasing him.

    (I think running this far this fast is a sign of serious mental illness as if he was running form something, but what do I know?)

    As someone who struggled just to complete 26.2, I cannot wrap my mind around this. Hes not young either (by serious professional runners standards).

    to put this in perspective, i saw someone mention that this is the same as running 105 consecutive 68 second 400 meter laps without a break

    I'm not sure I can run >13mph for more than a few seconds.
