But for anybody out there who cares, the man runs it at a rate of about 6:51 per mile. Good God. So while I'm busy being proud that I can run 1.5 miles in barely over 11 minutes (that'd be 7:20 per mile), he's beating my rate by thirty seconds a mile -- and going over 26 miles at that speed.
Thirty seconds a mile isn't, like, vast, and that rate is something I could achieve for shorter distances with a little more training. I'm still impressed.
