The first one in the USA. Run today by 24-year-old Ryan Hall in Houston. 59:43 at the finish line after 13.1 miles on the road.
I can't even imagine. I'd be delighted to run a 2-hour half marathon some day. Actually, I'd be delighted to go under 2:30 in March. We'll see. Heck, I feel pretty darned good when I can cover five miles in under an hour.
Update: Correction - that may be the first by an American citizen (?) Here's a list of 41 sub-hour half marathon performances prior to this. Thanks for setting things straight, Comm!
