That being said...
Those runners are crazy! I saw that a guy I knew from college ran the marathon today in 3:04. That's a SEVEN MINUTE MILE average for 26.2 miles. I don't think I could run a seven minute mile if my life depended on it. And he was no where near the winning times!

It took the winning male 2 hours and 8 minutes (congratulations Meb! First American male to win since 1983) to win. That pace is better than five minutes per mile. Pure insanity.
It's the most primitive of sports - no equipment is needed - yet I'm fascinated by it.
Congrats to all who competed today. You're all crazy.
