You don't eat fish caught in Lake Erie.
The Logic of Long Distance
Physicist Richard Feynman once said, "VO2Max and five bucks will get you a cup of joe at Starbucks."
On the way home from walleye fishing on Lake Erie one time when I was a kid (pre-cell phone era), my dad's Suburban puked and I had to run a mile and a half, from Samaria to Temperance, home to tell my mom to bring the car to pull the Suburban and the boat home. It was hot that day.
Perhaps we could start our own race in memory of that event?!?
