>Racing>Pyongyang Marathon--who's in?
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.

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." Emil Zatopek
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.
#1: Do what I can do (200+ training days, 200+ aerobic hours).
#2: Race shape (1/2 marathon, 2 half Ironmans, marathon)
#3: Prepare for 2018
I heard the finisher's medal is a rocket launcher.
