120 divided by 26.2 equals….

A two-hour marathon.

Imagine that….

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).

That’s insane.

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?

That’s nuts.

That’s FAST!!
