Would need more info. I got married in Sedona at Cathedral Rock with just the guy that was licensed to marry us. A random hiking couple signed as witnesses. It would seem something that Walmsley would do.
I have zero knowledge of what the OP is talking about but clicked on this thread as I was interested in learning more about the topic in general (not specifically as it relates to Walmsley) as the topic of great friend groups from peoples 20s breaking up interests me.
I've seen it both with myself and then my wife (who is a decade younger). A great group of recent college grads having the time of their lives right after graduation, and then 5 years later, there are huge divisions. It really sucks. Lilke why can't we all get along?
Often times, it seems as if someone sleeps with someone maybe someone thought they shouldn't have and once the group divides, you normally kind of of have to pick a side and it sucks. Or two people have a huge falling out and again you have to pick a side.
I had a good group of "friends" throughout college. We'd hang out all the time, drink together, hang out together, travel over spring break etc.
5 years later, we had completely drifted apart.
I went to get a STEM PhD so was busy af and made new, like-minded friends in grad school.
One guy started drinking way too much. We tried meeting up with him a few times after graduation but he would just get plastered like it was Friday night at the college bar.
Another guy was still living in his parent's basement playing video games, 3 years post graduation. Acted super immature and was no longer pleasant to be around. No ambitions of ever working.
Two guys of the guys married women and had kids within a year of finishing college. Hardly any time to meet up and all he talked about were his wife and kids.
There was just nothing really bonding us anymore. Our schedules diverged, whereas in college we were on basically the same schedule, dealing with the same problems (women, grades), had plenty of time to drink, no responsibilities, and had things we could easily talk about (e.g. bitching about some professor or whatever). Life happens. It's really sad at times, but it is what it is.
During the late miles in Walmsley’s 100km world record attempt, was it Senseman in the lead vehicle shouting at Walmsley to take it easy, that he had plenty of time, when in reality, Walmsley ended up missing the record by mere seconds? If so, was there any fallout from that?
In fairness to Senseman, I went back and watched the end of the WR attempt (video is on the “HOKA TV” YouTube channel) and his comments may not have been as bad as I remembered.
With less than 13minutes to go, Walmsley shouts out in agony, and Senseman responds from the lead vehicle, “You’re alright, you’re alright.” With ~8minutes to go, “Jim you got it. You’re nailing it.” With ~7:10 to go, Senseman tells Walmsley, “Jim, last straight home here.” Walmsley again shouts out in pain, and Senseman replies, “You’re alright! C’mon!” With less than seven minutes to go, Walmsley keeps checking his watch, and Senseman says, with ~5:38 (less than one mile) to go, “Jim, you don’t got to go any faster. Stay right there.” Walmsley checks his watch again. (He’s probably trying to do the math in his head.) With ~5:28 to go, Senseman shouts, “Right there, Jim, right there.” Walmsley grimaces in agony; with ~5:07 to go, Senseman again shouts, “Right there, Jim, right there!”
Maybe whoever was driving the lead vehicle could have gotten out further ahead in order to try and quicken the pace. We won’t know. It was a tremendous effort, but came up just a bit short.
