        It was verified by Guinness. He has a 2:46 PR, so he's no slouch.

            Ok, the guy runs 26 miles a day. That is nice, but like so what? That is about 182 miles a week. I can think of quite a few runners who were doing that back in the 70's and racing a hell of lot faster.

            Hell, Walt Stack use to do a five mile bike ride, run 17 miles and swim out to Alcatraz every morning, starting at 3am, then he went to work as a hod carrier.

              2:46 is about what I ran after taking up running again for four months after being a very mediocre high school runner (e.g., 7th JV senior year).

              Anyone that can train that much and cannot run faster than he is running seems 'odd' to me.

                I had never heard of this guy but my first thought about his 2:46 PR is, if you know you are going to run another marathon tomorrow, you probably don't want to go all out.

                  No one goes all out everyday in training. But this guy's goal is to train so he can train some more. Which is nice, but so what?

                  Ted Corbitt was probably doing alot more than a marathon a day in his peak years when he held the 100 mile AR back in the 60's and he actually raced.

                  When I said this guy was full of shit, I thought he was claiming to run 500 marathon events in 500 days, which clearly is impossible.
