The Googles Do Nothing: bingethinker: balki1867: o5iiawah: Tired of these stories of people who "run" the marathon only to find out they were averaging 19 minute miles...

Generally speaking I'd agree with you, but according to TFA she ran it in 1991 (at 64 years old) in under 4 hours.  She's definitely not some slouch who ran one just to tell everyone she ran one-- it's a legitimate hobby for her

Yeah, but this time it took her eight hours. You could walk that distance in less time than that.

We'll see how well you do in the marathon when you are 86.   Good for her, she lived her life to the fullest until the end rather than a nursing home vegetable like most of the fat and drunk Farkers here will be by their 60s.

We'll never know. By the time I'm 86, marathons will have been outlawed, so that the snowflake generation won't feel bad about being too fat to even stand and watch a marathon.
