Many of us are familiar with Haile Gebreslassie and his world record performance in Berlin back in 2008. A 2:03:59 marathon is nothing short of amazing. However, I did not know much about Haile outside of his superb running performances until a few days ago. CNN did a special on Gebreselassie – Haile Revealed. Although done before his 2008 WR performance, it still highlights Haile’s incredible character. Simple, happy, giving, inspiring, motivating, hard working, funny… those are just a few words I would use to describe him.

Happy Trails and Happy Running,
Running Update: Well today was no fun. I ran to the greenway to complete my 8 miles and it was closed!! Why the heck it was closed, I have no idea. But it left me running circles around downtown Raleigh just to get in the 8 miles. My legs are starting to feel like they could use a good massage. I wonder if I can convince Mario?? Stats are here.
