I'm surprised nobody else has posted about this yet, but the world has a new marathon time record, as of yesterday.
BERLIN - Haile Gebrselassie took advantage of a perfect course and ideal conditions to set a world record at the Berlin Marathon. Gebrselassie raced through Berlin's flat and fast course to set his 25th world record in 2 hours, 4 minutes, 26 seconds. That lowered the time of his good friend Paul Tergat by 29 seconds.

Doing the math, I believe that is 4:48 miles for an entire 26.2. Wow. I will be more than satisfied if I can come within even an hour of his time next weekend in Minneapolis.
