Pic after the 29:10 8K


  1. I found a picture of him finishing the 8k -Doesn't look like he even ran it. Posted it on the current thread on Letsrun.

  2. Nobody in their right mind would have started that race wearing long pants with a sub-3 goal. It only topped out near 80F during the marathon. I doubt he's used to running in that kind of heat in March in Michigan.

  3. Checkout the pic I found from 2003 with his caption. It was on his charity facebook page.
    I posted it on the thread (letsrun)

  4. Truly amazing how this guy is able to race so frequently and with such consistent times. He usually negative splits by several minutes while walking it in to the finish.

    If you see someone finish a sub three marathon walking it in to the very line the way he does, it probably means that they sustained a major injury and will not be running again for several weeks/months.

    Yet he goes on to race the following weekend. Truly amazing.
