Paul Ryan. Marathon Man. Sub-3, right at the head of things with the Ethiopians and Kenyans.
This link. And here. Well, you do a bit of budget trimming on the marathon, some removed here, some there, take out the social giveaway time; and you get it down to an unrealistic misstated sub-3. By trimming the fat. Anyway, it's not the actual time that matters. What matters is what you tell people that they or some of them will believe. Truth is weaker than fiction. Who would not favor a good macho-man story over a mundane pedestrian truth. However, cut Ryan some slack, that four hour grind is somewhat faster than a pedestrian, walking the course, telling the truth.
