A record-breaking marathon, a solo 5km, and 2 runaway kids…

Toddler leans on dog

There’s a new world record in the women’s marathon after Ethiopia’s Tigst Assefa ran the 42.195km Berlin Marathon in just 2 hours, 11 minutes, and 53 seconds. She beat the previous record by 2 minutes 11 seconds, with a pace of 3:08 per kilometre.

Taking your dogs for a 5km walk – tick. Taking your dogs for a 5km walk when you’re 2yo – cross… All’s well that ends well – toddler Thea Chase was found asleep off a trail near her Michigan home using one of the pups as a pillow. 

And speaking of errant children, a 10yo boy and his 11yo sister were pulled over by police in Florida on Friday after driving 320km from home. They took off because they were upset with their mother after she took away their electronic devices. Hard to think they’ll get them back anytime soon…
