Amazing achievement . Agree that the circumstances don't matter in this feat, he still had to run 26.2 Miles unaided. The split times are phenomenal.
Was going for a run this morning but may just stay in bed instead as I feel inadequate.

Many professional women marathoners also have their coaches running with them as pacers in races. If you have the time, ability, support and resources to do something *legally* to your full potential, go for it.

The Birmingham Half was two miles short due to standing water making the course hazardous. I did 1:29:22 which was Pb pace.

Well done Richard. I have just driven around the Cannon Hill Park/Pershore Road section and feel quite tired.

It’s the second ‘half marathon’ in a row that I’ve done which has not been the full distance! Organisers are evidently taking pity on my advancing years.

Not quite 1:59 territory but easy to overlook the marathon time of Jan Frodeno at the Ironman world championship in Kona yesterday, after a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike he knocked out a 2:42 marathon.  Not too shabby.

I wasn't standing water, the organisers have just said it was due to a security incident in Cannon Hill Park, that was a white van left completely unattended in the middle of Cannon Hill Park. The Police told the organisers to cut the route short missing out the park and Edgbaston Cricket Ground. I was pretty happy with my 1 hour 56 minutes

That’s true but the initial announcement before my wave set off was that it had been reduced to 12 miles because of flooding. It was only later the true story was announced. Shame, because it was otherwise really enjoyable today. The crowd support seemed to be better than ever.

Now that is very impressive. The man is a machine.
