The World is Just 25 Seconds Away

No one has ever run a marathon in under 2 hours. Eliud Kipchoge has the current record at 2:00:25. After months of intense training with Nike to break the 2 hour mark, he came up just 25 seconds short.

Eliud is infamous for his relentless spirit and belief that human beings can do anything. After the race he was asked “does this mean humans are limited?” He said “No. The world is just 25 seconds away now.”

I got chills when I heard him say that.

It would be easy to say that Eliud is just 25 seconds away, but this race wasn’t just about him. For him, it was about moving the human race forward. His goal was to get humanity past the 2 hour mark.

Move people forward.
