Paul Ryan – PR?…BS!

Associated Press

Republican vp candidate Paul Ryan recently bragged about having a marathon PR (personal record) of 2 hours 50ish minutes.  For your reference, a marathon is 26.2 miles and to run it that fast would mean he ran 7 minute miles, which is pretty darn quick.

Well, Runner’s World checked it out and turns out it was total bullshit – he ran it in 4 hours and 1 minute.  Here’s the link to the story in Wall Street Journal.

OK, this is funny to me not because I’m a member of the runner’s police, but because I’m a Democrat and like poking fun at Republicans sometimes.  I seriously don’t care that this was his “big fish” story.

My personal best was the Marine Corps Marathon in 2005.  My medal says that I ran it in 4 hours and 40 minutes, but it probably was more like an hour and a half.
