This Day In Track... Valentine's Day

1999- Haile Gebrselassie ran a then world record of 12:50.38 in the 5000m in Birmingham, UK.  Haile is known as "The Greatest" for his dominance of the track and roads in the last 15 years.  He held world records at 2k, 3k, 5k, 10k, Half-Marathon, 30k, and Marathon.  He has won World Championships at every distance from 1500 to 10000.  Below is a book that I am currently reading and have found to be quite enjoyable.  I will post a review after I finish it.  Thanks for reading!
