You are only as good as your last marathon, marathon list!

Post  charles on Wed Jun 29, 2011 12:58 pm

This is a list I have been keeping for years. Anytime a friend of mine runs a marathon I place them in the appropriate spot - so they can compare themselves with the celebrities around their time. I have an exhaustive list with all my Memphis running buddies with their last times in bold because as we like to say - you are only as good as your last race!

I am sorry I don't know how to format this data better. My original is in a word doc. I wish I had at least done it in a chart format. Sorry if it is difficult to read.

Haha that is funny, that's right you hate that darn treadmill. I guess you won't be pulling my crazy act of doing a 21 miler then running a 25 miler the next day on the treadmill?

Pretty cool list Charles.

Mark Allen's marathon duel with Dave Scott in the 1989 Ironman to finally break through is still one of the most impressive marathons I've seen. The two were side by side for I think 24 miles without saying a word to one another before Allen finally dropped him.

Lance is on the list twice. Plus, Ryan Hall's Boston performance was the fastest ever American time, although not the American record.

Is there a "pre" roid Lance? Salazar said he did that basically with nothing longer than 10 miles in his training. I'd be shocked if he wasn't using for that race.

Zzzzzzz. Let the doping thing die, for the love of God. Cyclists dope. Some get caught. End of discussion. PLEASE.

That said, Lance's debut time is going down next time I hit the road.

Yeah . . . let's talk about the nuances of David Lee Roth's training. Did he cut back his drug and alcohol intake before his Sunday long runs? Did he run on a treadmill during his world tour? And drum roll please . . . is it apparent he had too much sex the night before the big event resulting in a poor marathon time?

I actually saw on one of those Fox Sports Sports Science shows that having sex prior to physical activity actually increases your performance. (physical activity, not sexual performance (sorry Charles))

To be fair, I never said whether or not I think Lance ever doped... Shit, here goes the discussion. Let's say this: I respect him tremendously, not only as a cyclist (as I respect all professional cyclists, regardless of doping status [addendum: maybe I have a grudge against Contador, but that doesn't mean he's not absolutely amazing on the bike]), but for what he's done with Livestrong as well.

If you ever run the Grand Rapids Marathon or 1/2, the pace teams use these times. In other words, the signs the pacers carry all have the celebrity's picture on them and the bib you can wear has the person's picture and time also. It's the RD's humor, but I find it funny. They even have Pi pacers for those wanting to run a 3.14......

http://grandrapidsmarathon.com/pace-teams/

If that link works, the pace team "bios" are listed at the bottom.

On a side note, this past Feb. when I just missed my BQ time, I consoled myself with the fact that at least I had beaten Sarah Palin's time.
