Take a look at any number of 5k's (the bigger the better). This is a SAMPLE of the entire US.
The median and averages would be exactly what they are currently.
What you're assuming is that everyone in the US would be motivated to be a hard worker, free from injury, eat well, etc, etc.
We KNOW this is not the case.
What is the average now? Something like 24-25?
There you have it. EOT.
No, the real question is what could that elephant in the room run if it were motivated and trained.
