Challenging FM to run a 5K at 20 min, or even a 10K at 40 min, is a TERRIBLE idea.
Watch the video of the 2018 LAM finish. Frank's visible from 1:26 LEFT to 1:22:50 left. At 1:22:50 LEFT in the video he's at the front of the visible field. To me, he appears to keep pace with the other runners for the 3 minutes he's visible. Presumably the other runners are 2:55 marathon finishers, so about 6:45 pace.
The evidence is already overwhelming. If he were to come close and run even 21 min 5k or even a 42 min 10k, I think it'd cloud the issue for many people. No challenges.
Can you explain this again? I don't see anyone running on there for 3 minutes. Please tell me where to go as I'm going to issue a challenge.
