Pyongyang Marathon--who's in? (Read 76 times)


Imminent Catastrophe

    Well, if I weren't running that little one on Monday I'd love to do this one. I expect Kim Jog Un will probably run sub-2.

    Tahoe Rim Trail 100M 19/20 July 2014

      I heard he ran 14 flat for a 5k down by the water. Just going for a run and listening to some tunes.

        Yeah, he doesn't run a lot, but he's a super-fit, super-active dude.  Rock climbing, cross-planet skiing, up-mountain skating, stuff like that.

         

        He's not sure he's good enough to enter a race, though.  Which is fair.  And easy pace slower than WR pace is kind of sad.

        "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."

          I wonder if it's a certified race distance.

          I wonder how many from Boston this year ran Pyongyang last year for his 100th birthday.
          There's got to be a feel good story there.

            I heard the finisher's medal is a rocket launcher.
