The winning time is about a 5 minute mile for 26 miles. I'm not sure if I can even sprint a 5 minute mile pace for a quarter mile.
yes, super impressive. I think the knock is not on these athletes, but on the people who make a giant deal about it via social media when in reality it's just a long spirited jog.
in any event, big props to sugarbutch. Reserve 50% of the props for completing the race, and 50% for overcoming any thoughts of "hey let me put my shoes on and see how the weather is ..... yep, fuck that shit, back to bed"
