cynicalbastard: To be fair, I think the guy who did it had basically run 26 miles immediately after fighting in a major battle, more-or-less making it the equivalent of running 2 back-to-back.

 "The guy" was pretty fictional anyway. The Greek had professional runners/couriers and Pheidippides was supposed to be one, so even if that were actually true he wouldn't have been fighting. I think people are still doing a run based on an earlier version of the story, where he ran from Athens to Sparta in under two days (only to be declined there), which is a 150 mile run (he didn't die in that version).

Some Swiss thought this was too nice a story not to copy after they had a battle at "Murten". In this version, it took only 10 miles for the runner to die. Probably the first and last time the Swiss did anything faster than anyone else.

Macular Degenerate: Yes, but will he do it in  these?

Pretty sure Jesus would shoot him in the face if he wore those.

Brontes: Wow, 10 whole miles a day. Someone tell the bionic man not to burn out his servos!

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster. He will be... the 60 Dollar Man."

I'm going to spend 1,500 hours on Fark this year.  People will look at me like I'm crazy.  Which is a correct way of looking at someone who spends 4 hours a day on Fark.
