RE: Cross-Canada record attempt, 7200K - 66 days. Current record by Al Howie 72 days
I guess it’s loyalty to Al (who died 2 years ago), and the record that was his signature legacy. I benefited more than Al in many ways, as a medium-ability runner who tagged along & got in great shape & met a lot of big names. No one else who was there is young enough or involved in the sport enough to speak for Al.
My concern specifically is the faster pace, when Al was such a strong runner (he already held the competitive 1300-mile record then, and bettered it after). I wouldn’t have thought such an improvement was possible.
