Averaging a six-minute-15-second mile pace throughout the race.

Awesome.  That's a lot of damn work.  At 46, I could *maybe* do that for a mile or two.  I'm typically around 7-ish for a 5K at moderate push and that is still way off from being able to hold her pace for that distance at such an age.

Big deal. I do a marathon every weekend.

Last weekend it was Start Trek: TNG. The weekend before was Game of Thrones.

Wake me up when she can sit ass-to-couch for 20 hours straight without getting up.
