The thing I'm most interested in his how did he do it?
I mean LA is point to point. And we know he ran like .8 of a mile at one point. So if he runs there and back (to a car) but waits a bit before it, you are talking like 1.6miles. I'm not sure he's fast enough to run that far, drive the car, etc.
Uber isnt' real reliable unless you tell the driver you'll pay for 3 hours worth of work.
A bike isn't easy to pull of either.
Maybe I should cheat in LA next year. I've always claimed I should "run" lehigh valley in the same time as Mike Rossi. There is no way I could run that fast but I want to hit the timing mats and finish in his time and see if they DQ me. Maybe I should fly out to LA and try their 'minor league' race as well. I can write if off as a business expense and the wife will be thrilled to get some sunshine.
Any suggestions on the best way for me to hit all of the timing mats within say 30 seconds of an even split while barely running?
We talked about this a bit last night. I have also said I’d like to replicate this, and maybe I will try, and just remove my chip before the finish.
He didn’t have to run 1.6 miles. Look at the course map between miles 11 and 12. I had wondered why he didn’t emerge closer to that mat. But he could have parked at mile 12, cutting the total distance he needed to cover to 0.8 miles if he did this solo.
If both of you could attempt this, while documenting the attempts, would be epic to watch. This would have to be a first... has anything like this ever been done before?
