A two-hour marathon.
I’m running a little again…..”running”.
My “pace” is “probably” …..oh, about 10 or maybe 12 minutes per…..OK, I’m bragging….maybe 15 minutes per mile now.
I’m slow….but….I go.
Lets do the math:
120 minutes divided by the length of the marathon (26.2 miles) comes out to about 4.58015267176 minutes per mile.
(The runners round that number off a little, I’m sure).
I ran a 5:20 mile once and thought that my body would explode.
That was one mile…..one time.
One time when I was really young.
I was in the middle of the pack, too.
These guys run fast for a long ways.
Two hours is a mark waiting to be broken.
What kind of perfect race do you need to run to break two hours?
