RE: Remember elite fat activist Ragen Chastain? She's back with a 10 hour marathon finish in Maine.

I'm 65. In January I *walked* a marathon in 5 1/2 hours (and I'm no racewalker). So this kind of performance is just hard for me to fathom.

But still, good for her. At least she's doing something (when she's actually *doing* it and not cheating, of course) to get a little bit healthier. The vast majority of American adults couldn't finish 42km on foot (in one day) under any circumstances.

And seemingly has a huge audience.

Meanwhile, fragile looking elite distance runners practice and perform in relative anonymity.
