Mo Farah has indeed run before

Feb 26, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT


London 5000m and 10000m champ Mo Farah won the Rock ‘N Roll New Orleans half marathon Sunday in a course record of one hour and 59 seconds. The race was part of his training to transition to the full marathon next year (and hopefully in Rio). After the race, an impressed local news anchor interviewed the British track star and asked, “Haven’t you run before? This isn’t your first time?” Which, after being confused and leaning in for a quick “Sorry?”, Farah graciously answered that yes, he had run before. A couple of times. Although he humbly failed to mention the two gold medals, Mo noted that he’ll try running again during the first half of the London Marathon this April, while wearing shoes and everything.

    So I’m the only one who thinks she was referring to this race in particular?
