    An interesting interview.

    I especially like:

    “If you concentrate on the rear mirror,” he told Runner’s World, “you’ll crash and cause an accident.”

    “I have been doing all things at 80 percent,” he noted. “Once in a while you can run very fast, but you cannot always go to the maximum.”

    I agree that he seems very wise like Yoda. He is definitely a Jedi master of running.

    I watched the short video about him that they made ahead of the London Marathon. In it he speculated that eventually, marathons might have teams similar to cycling some day and indicated that he could not do what he does without his training group. He spends 6 days a week in the training camp living a simple, running-focused life and one day a week with his wife and family.

    He’s so easy to like. I was happy to learn that he has won his fourth London Marathon this morning. I wish him continued success through 2020 and as long as he continues competing.
