RE: Congratulations: Ed Whitlock Gets NY Times Feature
Age 73.

" the running journalist Marc Bloom said that Whitlock’s performance in 2004 may have made him “the world’s best athlete for his age.”

For that startling race, Whitlock’s training log showed that he did 43 training runs of three hours apiece. He did not measure the distance, but his speed at the time suggested that a three-hour run could cover more than 20 miles, perhaps as many as 22 or 23, not much shorter than the distance of a full marathon.

“I was much better prepared for that race than I have ever been before or since,” Whitlock said."
