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.
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.
