(Part 549 of "Is The 2hr Run Really That Important?")
THIS IS INCORRECT I KNOW SOME 800 METER GUYS WHO DID 50 MILE RUNS... oh.. wait...
Probably best to cut the 800m guys out of the question, as most of them wouldn't do a 2hrs run (I said most not all).
El G never ran more than 7 miles in one day.*
*I made this up.
I know this is a joke, I actually thought it was funny.

Well, Pheidippides only ran once over 2 hours, and it killed him.
You're still wrong. Pheidippides didn't die after running in Marathon or after any other run - in fact, he wasn't in Marathon at all.
But seriously, it's wrong. Phiddy ran something like 140k the day before his lethal marathon.
