Saying you want to be "like Ritz", is like saying you'd look towards Lauren Fleshman for "marathon advice", because she's run a marathon. I'm sorry but Ritz underperformed by 3-4 min. relative to his recent best 5K, and has only run 1 decent marathon in his career, which was still an underperformance relative to his ability. I'd rather "be like" Ryan, Khalid, Paula, Deena, Desi, Bill, Steve Jones, or any number of athletes who overperformed in the marathon relative to their talent. These are the athletes that I want to know how they eat, sleep, train, repeat.
