Am I doing this right?

    I'm not sure how that guy got this confused, but he was certainly in pretty good shape.

    No excuses....

      Fixed that for him.

      "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

        The 10K warmup gave him an unfair advantage.  I bet I could run a 3:25 marathon with a warmup like that.

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          Something is screwy

           

          "After running a 44-minute, 28-second 10K, Lee ended up running the 26.2-mile marathon in 3 hours, 25 minutes. That fell short of qualifying for the Boston Marathon by five minutes.

          His BQ time is 3:25.  Results show he did run a 44:28 10K but he doesn't show up on the Marathon results.

          Running is dumb.

            Yep, starting a marathon 75 minutes before you were expecting it to start.  That's screwy.

            No excuses....

              He really should have considered reading the emails, schedules on the website, etc... ahead of time.

                He got a medal for a 10K? And he ran it as a bandit to boot? (I'm not outraged, or anything. I find the situation amusing, though),

                  His BQ time is 3:25.  His official time (it is up) was 3:25:05.  He missed it by 5 seconds, not 5 minutes.

                    That is a real kick in the junk.
