26.2 -- Wow... That's a long way!

Totally in awe of the female Olympic marathoners right now. They're only 10: 31 into the race, but they are so freaking amazing!

NBC just showed the course map from an aerial view and it seemed like such a long distance. Then it hit me. "Hey, I've done that a few times." In about double the time, but I've covered that distance in a respectable amount of time (you know, compared to other normal people).

It was a great race! I felt bad for Paula Radcliffe though. Seems like the olympics just elude her.

Yeah, that is a long way. Heck, I think 5 miles is a long way..can't even imagine 26.2 miles. Kudos to everyone who can accomplish that feat.
