RE: Congratulations: Ed Whitlock Gets NY Times Feature
Running for 3 hours in a cemetery would be drudgery for anyone. But looking at the satisfaction on his face at the finish lines tells me (and him, and anyone else) that it's all worth it.
Quantitatively, I find it interesting that his peak performance came from 43 training runs of 3 hrs each, which might total somewhere close to 900 miles. This would support an often used metric that you should run (at least) 1000 miles in preparing for a marathon.
