I got in touch with the Runner's World UK member who reported Rob's results in 2004. He isn't able to help us because he doesn't remember anything about it.
Thanks for trying.
On a separate note, am I allowed to apologise for being unremittingly stupid? I made the mistake of looking at his two Strava accounts and adding the totals together, before realising of course they cover all the same sections of travel. I will hereby get out of my mom's basement, ritually flog myself and video the evidence for YouTube, then go out for a run at get some vitamin D as a punishment.[/quote]
Definitely flog yourself....definitely YouTube it....however, just pop a vitamin pill and return to the basement, strap your watch to a passing dog or bin lorry and upload the "run" for kudos and praise ;-)
