Record in Boston

As promised the Reebok Boston Indoor Games was a great event. With Tirunesh Dibaba shattering her 5000 M World Indoor Record by get this - five and a half seconds. Tirunesh herself was surprised by the margin. The full story is at IAAF. Running with a cold, Meseret Defar was not as lucky in breaking the 3000 M record. She ended up winning the race but had to be helped off the field. I don't know how many of you have run with a cold but it is a dangerous thing to do because the reparatory system is being taken to the extreme. Best wishes to Meseret who gave it all her best and congratulations to Tirunesh.
