RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
One of the reasons this message board can suck at times...People who have never attempted to do any "Multi-day events" chiming in with how easy it is. We saw it last year with the Jurek thread about the AT record and now have seen it with this thread.
I get it. Everyone on this damn site does 100+mpw at 2:15 marathon pace, so of course doing 50 miles per day is easy, given you have 24 hours to do it. I mean, come one, that's barely under 30 minute per mile pace!
The reality is that doing 50 miles PER DAY, EVERYDAY for 45 (PLUS) DAYS IN A ROW is hard as hell. That is doing 350 Mile weeks every week for the better part of 7 straight weeks Add in elevation, weather, etc and it makes for one hell of a challenge.
Look I don't know if he cheated. Based upon the evidence presented on this board, I would lean towards yes, he was, before Asher called him out.
