Haven’t You Run Before?

Mo Farah will be running the London Marathon on Sunday – his first ever marathon. At the London Olympics, he took home gold in the 10,000m:

Then he took home gold in the 5,000m:

No Passing Zone.

Gold.

Gold.

Both races went out quite slow and finished extremely fast. This made them rather exciting. How exciting?

The two wins at the Olympics gave Mo rock-star status.

However, despite rock-star status, this happened:

Um, yes, he has run before.

Anyhow, in 2012, Clare Balding, a BBC presenter, came up with the Mobot. Mo has used it to celebrate his wins, including his wins at the Olympics. He has also used it to raise money for The Mo Farah Foundation.

    Fav celeb runner is Usain Bolt. Because I am Jamaican and because he is just such an incredible runner, no matter how fast he goes, he always look like he could go faster.

    LOL, I remember hearing about someone asking Mo Farah if he had ever run before. I think it was yet another occurrence though. I don’t have any predictions about who will win the London Marathon, but I’m a fan so I hope he does well there!

    I am jealous. I want to run in the London Marathon. I think that is my official 2015 goal. I want to qualify for Boston but I seem to be slowing down. I had all of the speed I needed the past two years with my sub 1:40 half marathons but I was just too lazy to do the full…I did finally…idiot I am and got heat stroke and vomited during my april marathon in the south ah ah ahahaha…I think Mo will rock the London Marathon. I am jealous I wont be there to see it…Goooooo MOOOOOOOOO

    This is just insane. I am so fascinated by people like this. Also, that D.Beckham photo…so good.

  6. I loled at that video so hard. I don’t know why I had not seen it before.

    Mo is such an inspiration because he is so friendly, nice and personable. He is fast but it super genuine if that makes any sense.
