Kenyan, Ethiopian win this year's ING New York Marathon

New York City's annual tradition didn't disappoint this year, as a man from Kenya and a woman from Ethiopia won their respective divisions Sunday in the ING New York City Marathon, with Geoffrey Mutai setting a new course record - cutting nearly three minutes from the previous one.

Mutai finished at 2:05:06, according to the official website for the race, breaking the old record of 2:07:43 set by Ethiopia's Tesfaye Jifar in 2001, the website said.

Firehiwot Dado, 27, won the women's division in her first running of New York's marathon, with a time of 2:23:15, the website said.

Mutai, 30, also won the Boston Marathon in April, with a world record time of 2:03:02. That record is not recognized internationally, however, as the day's strong tailwinds and the course's incline drops fall outside of the International Association of Athletics Federations' record-setting regulations.

    Yes, repeat that again. I was under the impression that all whites are good people and that only black Americans are on welfare and in prison. If what you say is true, then Bush and company should be in prison along with 1/2 white Colin Powel. Bill Clinton? He should be, what? Offering to help fat girls by sharing his wisdom at abortion clinics as a way of saying sorry for spoogeing all over our oval office? Monica Lewinsky could model as a pregnant woman for the gig. Of course she'd have to shed a few pounds first...other than that, she'd make a good stand-in for an emotionally stressed woman trying to decide the fate of potential Americans. No? What would you have Bill and dubya doing? Bringing Peace to the Earth? lmao Are you sure you want your Peace from these bozos?

    ...make that *uncle* Ray. And we didn't burn our bras dummy! We just profit from those who did. So stop comparing our fruit to their apples and oranges. It's not the exact same thing, so your illustration can't hold my water.
