Maybe it is just time to quit…

Rhonex Kipruto from Kenya recently broke the 10K and 5K road world records in the same race!  26:24 and 13:08 (almost twice as fast as I can run… )  The first 5K of  the course was also certified for a WR.  Check out Rhonex Kipruto at the Valencia Ibercaja race in Spain.

Maybe I need to go to Valencia to run a race…
