Myself, I'd get winded of I drove 26.2 miles much less ran them.

Seems like the books should put some action up on this.

Might go watch to see if it motivates me.

I thought it was a new exercise regime for gamblers.

One where you run to every sportsbook on the strip 

and make a livegame wager at each "station".

Only place I might be running to tonight in the greater LV metropolitan area is the ATM at the Red Rock.

I'd finish it.  Might have to walk most of it, but I'd finish it just to say I did.  I think most posters would do that, too.

Brock would run for two miles, see a cheeseburger, and drop out.

That progressive double double machine I hit for $1,485 is at $1,300+.

 

Pass.  At some point, it becomes +EV again after it hits $1,200.   But we aren't in the ballpark yet.

They have time limits and cutoff points. I think the max is 5 hours. Doesn't sound like much if a pace but that's not walkable

Winner ran it in 2:38.  Seems kind of slow.  Don't know if it is a hard course.  Seems WVU could come close to that in his heyday.

Even with your running experience you would still need to train about 40 to 50 miles a week for 4 months to make it in 3:30 imo.

that's kinda what I meant by light prep.  I couldn't break 4 hours right now.

sometimes but not on a regular basis.  I could still run a 5k in a decent time, but a marathon would be very tough.

Seriously? I think Alberto Salazar only was able to break 2:10 a couple times and he was one of the best in the world. Not an exact contemporary of yours but probably only a 10 year or so difference.

I was one of the best in the US at the time, but there were still several guys who could run sub 2:12.  Salazar was a 2:08 guy.

That is quite impressive, knew you were good but 2:16 would be considered elite

Back in the late 80's/early 90's I was hauling garbage in Eugene Oregon.

 

Saw Alberto Salazar out training every week on my route. Also saw Mary Decker Slaney out training.
