I just used my mara PB + recent training times to fill in the gaps and I'm 60% likely to be Bronze again however there's still a 35% chance I can get sub-9 and if I do that you'll have to drag me away from the bar
Hope the running goes well for everyone this weekend!
justanothrrnr - it's not whether one can extend to 56km, or 90km or any distance. It's the idea or attitude that run/walking in a race of any distance in not "proper". It's nonsense. If an athlete finds it a personal challenge to race without walking, that's great. But it's not any better than those who don't.
Why would 90% runners on this forum (including SBA who clearly run-walks Comrades) even bother with if we felt that way? There's not a trace of malice intended in that comment and personally I like that people are comfortable enough to share their thoughts freely on this thread.
