12.78 MPH

It's not quite the 88 MPH needed for the DeLorean to time travel, but it is the average speed of this year's Boston Marathon winner.  Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai won the 26.2 mile race with a time of 2:03:02, a new record (though not officially recognized due to a strong tailwind).  To put this athletic feat into perspective, that's like running 26 consecutive 4 minute and 42 second miles.  Holy shit.
