...from my reading of the Zulu Wars, they would run for miles--as a group--to the battle area/etc
While we had marathon parties when we lived on the UES of Manhattan on First Ave. We were 2 blocks north of the Queensboro Bridge.It always amazed me that the first runners, usually Kenyans, were doing 5 minute miles at mile 20 and they were so focused, straight as a fucking arrow with absolute confidence and running with skill and precision.
It’s called genetics. Yet the ignoramouses amongst us would tell you “were all the same”. “There’s only one race; the human race.” Fucking idiots...
In that part of the world, tribesman would do exactly that. They would run for hours after prey until the prey couldn't run anymore.
I don't think a Kenyan ever won the Youngstown Marathon however. The last winner was from East Liverpool.
Why would a Kenyan run the Youngstown Marathon?
Why would a Kenyan run any American marathon race? Because its there.
That is an average of 4:34 mile for 26.2 miles.
If there are any runners here, tell them how hard it is to break just one mile in under 6 minutes.
That, is the greatest sports accomplishment ever.
I thought this thread was about Hussein.
