Keith Levasseur ran Saturday's Baltimore Marathon in 2:46:58 while wearing flip flops. Levasseur will file paperwork with the Guinness Book of World Records to have the feat acknowledged as a world record for a marathon in flip flops.

Bet that went down well with people running around him.
It kind of amazed me but people around him didn't seem to really mind. I'm not sure what the first few (congested) miles were like, but for most of the distance he seemed to have a fair bit of open space around him.
