The Emperor retires

leave a comment »

All things come to an end. It’s sad when a good thing ends.

My running idol, Haile Gebrselassie, retired yesterday, shortly after dropping out of NYC marathon at mile 16. The Ethiopian who broke 27 world records and ran the only sub-2:04 marathon is widely regarded as the greatest distance runner of all time. The retirement announcement came as a shock to the running world. I will miss him.
