Impressive performance on the track

Though I'm sure that the indoor mile is not run as often as the indoor 1500 meters, it's still contested.  So it was interesting that the indoor mile record for women has stood for 26 years.  I could think possibly about doping maybe having something to do with that, but I'll think good thoughts.

But I'm happy to report that the 26-year-old women's indoor mile record was broken by phenomenal Ethiopian runner Genzebe Dibaba.  And not by a little -- by over four seconds.

You can watch it here:

Though there were other runners on the track, nobody was running with her.  The rabbit did her job, dropped off, and then Dibaba took off at a mind-bending pace.  Amazing.
