I invite you to focus on the elevation grade up a hill of about 1100 ft between mile 5 and 6 of this miraculous run. He only slows from about 5:56 pace to 6:15 pace for that 1100 foot one mile climb! Impossible for a human being to keep that pace during a transcon. But not impossible for an RV.

Yeh, the amazing 28 miles in the 32-miler was just one of the first ones I saw. The uphill paces are even more damning, such as miles 17 & 18 in 5:44 and 5:34 with 300' elevation gain at over 5500' altitude in this 24-miler. 24 miles at a pace equivalent to a 2:53 marathon with 2100' elevation gain (most at the end) all over 5000' altitude.

2:45 and 2:53 for a marathon is a decent mark for a flat course at sea level like London for a recreational runner, but RY's PR is 3:07 at London 2015.[/quote]

Guys I really don't think this Strava data is meaningful for analysis unless he changes them to "Races". It's just showing paces and times while moving right now...
