Last Saturday in the early morning in Italy, a several year culmination of effort, science, and training met with 3 handpicked marathons preparing to try and break 2 hours in the marathon. Of course, that had never been done before but Nike was doing everything they could to try and have it be done.

Of the three marathoners, only one man got close. Eliud Kipchoge ran the marathon in a blistering time of 2:00:25. That is just an incredible time, world record or not (it was not a world record due to many factors but stands as the fastest time ever for the marathon).
If you wondered what it was like or would love to just hear more about this incredible effort, you will have a chance to today! Eliud will be doing a Facebook Live today at 2PM ET and you will be able to even ask questions of the man who ran 26.2 miles faster than anyone in the world!
In case you missed it last week, you can watch this incredible event with the video below. It is just incredible!
