|please dont squeeze the garmin|
Looks like those little f-ers are fast! Check out these Mini-Marathon results:
Holy smokes, itty bitty dudes running 1:04, little wimmin running 1:16 - nearly twice as fast as the full-sized world records, and on those stubby little legs! I guess they have a really favorable power-to-weight ratio.
|I said you got that right|
Who do you suppose could run a faster 100m? Mile? Marathon? Badwater? (for all you DK fans)
Yeah I saw that episode too, that was funny as shit, specially when he tried to climb the light pole to get away from the cop too, def one of my favorites for a while.
Sadly alot of dwarfs don't have the bone structure needed to be efficient runners, I know because I have a relative that is a dwarf and they especially have alot of hip problems.
I had five minutes to kill so....
I put a stopwatch on these small people running the 330 yard relay against this camel. I took the total time of 1:07.829 and divided by four, to find an average, 16.957 seconds for each leg of the race. The distance of each leg was 75.438 meters.
I then used the running race converter from Running Times Online, http://runningtimes.com/rt/articles/?id=6765, to calculate what that average relay split would convert to in the marathon.
So, accordiing to those retarded calculations, I figure a midget could hammer out an 8 hours, 39 minute, and 51 second marathon. Weather and conditioning depending, of course.
