It's not America, but the Ageo City Half Marathon had 400 guys sneak under 1:10 back in 2008: http://japanrunningnews.blogspot.com/2008/11/deeper-and-deeper-goes-greatest-half.html Maybe Japan still has running bums?
Btw, did there really used to be ~32:30 guys that were running bums? No offense to anyone who fit that description, I'm just curious.[/quote]
Well, 32:00-ish, but, yeah. I don't regret it a bit. I sometimes think if I had been better about stretching and recovery I could have squeezed another few minutes out of my marathon time, but I know, because I tried, that I was not destined to be a world class marathoner. And, oddly, that's what made those years such a good investment.
Oh... and I just freaking loved to run. And I still do.
