I posted on twitter this week the amusing story of US Vice Presidential nominee, who has attracted widespread scorn and ridicule this week from the running world. His crime? He blagged that he’d run a marathon quicker than he actually had. See here
In an interview, he had boasted of how he’d run a marathon twenty years ago in “under three, high twos. I had a two hour and fifty-something.” As it turns out his real time on inspection was a rather more modest (but still not wholly unimpressive 4:01:25).
