I haven’t looked into the record books, but I’ve only heard of a handful of people dribbling 26.2 with a basketball. Yesterday, Eric Martin dribbled the New York City Marathon in 4:00:45!! THAT IS FAST!
The previous DribbletheWorld.com record was 4:37:54 at the 2007 NYC Marathon. Other impressive times were 4:41:21 and 4:44:14–Eric shaved well over a minute off of every mile from those times! For those of you who are runners, imagine running around a 9:18 pace for over 26 miles, while dribbling a basketball!!
All that to say-GREAT JOB ERIC!!! Praise God for you and the heart He has given you for people. As far as I’m concerned, you have world record for dribbling a marathon-and if someone finds a faster time, we’ll bring you back to NYC to beat it
We’re still accepting donations in honor of Eric’s effort to help Malaria No More end malaria deaths by 2015. Remember, every $10 buys, ships, and distributes 2 mosquito nets to protect at risk families. If you are inspired in this way to give, donate here.
