Running Jargon:

"Negative Split"- A negative split simple means that you run the second half of a race faster than you ran the first. World class marathoners will often try and run equal or "negative splits" during a marathon.

Haile Gebrelassie the current world record holder for the marathon ran a slight negative split during his record setting race.
