Not even 100 meters

Chuck and I were talking about how runners sometimes don’t look like they are going that fast. I commented that the Kenyan’s running marathons don’t even look like they are going very fast. Chuck commented that you see them running along, passing water bottles to each other, and then the commentator says they just ran the last mile in 4:45.

It got me to thinking:  4:45 per mile is about 71 seconds a lap.  I couldn’t even run a lap with them at their marathon pace……

That would be 200 meters in 35 seconds.  I couldn’t even run 200 meters with them……

That would be 100 meters in 17 seconds. Wow, I can not run 100 meters with an elite marathoner at their marathon pace.
