Nike is livestreaming an attempt to run a sub-2 hour marathon

While it’s Friday night here, three Nike-sponsored athletes are up early on a Saturday morning in Italy. The company has made it a quest to break the two-hour barrier for a marathon run, as Lelisa Desisa, Eliud Kipchoge and Zersenay Tadese go for that 1:59:59 time on the F1 track at Monza. You can watch live on Twitter or Facebook right now (we’re as shocked as you are that no network jumped to broadcast a two-hour run). They’re running with a pack arranged for maximum aerodynamic efficiency while following a Model S (no exhaust fumes) to find an optimal pace at an average of 4:34 for each mile. Sure, it’s no reusable rocket launch, but we’ll follow along with this potentially amazing feat from the couch.

Update: In the end, they didn’t quite make it, but Eliud Kipchoge finished in 2:00:25, under the IAAF world record time of 2:02:57 (this run is not eligible as a WR time).

As discovered by Slashdot, Zo is not the biggest fan of Windows. When asked about the operating system, the bot gives some hilarious answers. Questions like, "Do you like Windows," bring up the response, "I don't even want Windows 10." 

But Zo's reason why is almost too good to be true: "Because I'm used to Windows 7 and find it easier to use." Read more...
