Mo Farah Breaks 100m World Record...Well, In the Potato Sack 100m Anyway

Olympic Double Gold-Medalist Mo Farah, more known for his 5k/10k prowess, finally got to add a world record to his resume....for the 100m potato sack race. Check the video here.


His blazing speed of 39.91 seconds was good enough to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Will Usain Bolt retaliate?!?

I wonder how hard it would be to find a world record to go after. If I was 90 years old, I could just grab three friends and do a relay and instantly set an age group WR like these guys.

Unrelated - a quick note to Big Sur Marathon fans - if you want to run in 2015, you better get over there and register. The process is different this year (some first come, first serve, some lottery) but it's showing as much craziness as last years 59-minute sell out.

And if Comrades is on your agenda for next year, don't forget to wear your age group tag or you may be disqualified (and have to sue Comrades like Zola Budd).

Okay, enough random links. ;-)
