The NYC Marathon Is A Sprint

Most runners have to train for months to finish the New York City Marathon in under five hours.  This past Sunday, Ethiopia’s Gebre Gebremariam won the marathon with a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 14 seconds.  Not bad… but thanks to some time lapsed footage courtesy of the MTA, FishbowlNY was able to complete the 26-mile jaunt in one minute and 40 seconds.  Talk about running an efficient two-minute drill.
