At RunBlogRun, we cover the global sport. While we cheer Team USA, it is important for me, that our readers appreciate the cultures and sports traditions of countries around the world. This was a huge weekend of records, and we want you to appreciate that Mr. Lillefosse’s NR is important not only to him and his fans, but to the sport.
