Is a 2:00 Hour Marathon Possible?

Not bloody likely.

We've discussed this briefly before, but we need to discuss it again. Why? Well, because some people, even some sorta smart running-type people, continue to insist that it's not only possible, but imminent.

I'm not buying it. My take is this: I won't be around to see it happen....and it wouldn't surprise me that much if it never happened.

My favorite guys, The Science of Sport dudes, just wrote a new post about why they're in the "won't happen" camp. Check it out right here.
