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.
4.34 a mile is smoking

Few physically fit adults could maintain that pace for even a minute, let alone two hours. It is obviously a combination of genetic predisposition and tremendous conditioning and willpower.

An astounding accomplishment, even with the little tricks they used to pace him.

So he doesn't get the official record since so many people paced him? Still remarkable! :102: :2cents: :abgg2q.jpg:
