"2:54 marathon at age 73 and 3:56 this year at age 85."
These times are absolutely phenomenal, but for me, the bigger story is just how fast the human body decays with advancing years. To lose 1 hour 2 minutes in about a decade, for someone who certainly puts in the miles, is a bit disappointing. You would never see this type of lose in any decade period between 10 and 70. What will the loss be in another decade? I don't know, but I'm rooting for Ed to show us that the the deterioration starts to level off.
