  • Today's funny

    Since 1975, a lot of reasonably talented guys have taken a shot at Drayton's Can record 2:10:09.
    The latest being Schiebler's attempt at NY last year. He is signed up for Chicago this year. In an interview prior to a tune up at a half marathon in Toronto this week-end, he was asked the following:

    AB Are you going to get Drayton's record this time?

    He answered:

    JS I have given little or no thought to Drayton's record. How fast is it?

    Barely related: RW Daily News called Schiebler Canada's best distance runner today. I'd only call him the fastest, since both Mondor and Babcock have had more success lately. Also, who would you bet on in a 10k race: Schiebler, or Simon Whitfield?

      Agreed. Best male.

      I assume that you are kidding.

        And just in case that was a set up question, I think this was their last head-to-head. Some ridiculous Nike promo thing and a lot of guys were slumming particularly the guy who finished 994th.

            Obviously I know which way you'd bet. After looking at the facts, I'll agree.

            Road PRs: Schiebler 28:36, Whitfield 30:36. Whitfield's is with a rather long warm-up, though.

            I didn't realize that Schiebler was as fast on the track as he is -- 27:36 is no joke. I guess there's some reason for them to ask him about running 2:10!

              It would be like me comparing Lance Armstrong to Culpepper or Kennedy. There would have been guffaws all round.

                Oh, you mean in that Amrstrong has actually won something important . . .

                  I am a huge fan of LA. The point being that, while he could no doubt run a great 10km IF he trained for it, he is also not in the class of BK or AC the way it was implied Scribbler and Whitfield were in the same class.
