RE: Congratulations: Ed Whitlock Gets NY Times Feature
" the running journalist Marc Bloom said that Whitlockâ€™s performance in 2004 may have made him â€œthe worldâ€™s best athlete for his age.â€
For that startling race, Whitlockâ€™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.
â€œI was much better prepared for that race than I have ever been before or since,â€ Whitlock said."
