Reporter Struggles to Keep up With Marathon Leaders

How fast do elite marathon runners go?

A Swedish reporter tried to find out first-hand at the Stockholm Marathon Sunday.

Live cameras caught the female reporter as she tried to keep up with the co-leaders, Benjamin Bitok and Nixon Machichin of Kenya.

She was able to hang for a moment, but the pair quickly left her behind. Now imagine keeping up that pace for a couple of hours.

Bitok ended up winning the race in 2:13:21. And the reporter -- well, it's back to training for her.
