    Nine marathons this weekend (maybe more). 52 weekends of marathons a year times X number of people in each times Y weeks of training times Z miles per week equals people with a whole lot more free time than I have. I run 4 times a week x 3 miles and that's SQUEEZING it in. That represents about 20% of what most of these people are running - MADNESS!

      Note that the Kenyans didn't even finish in the top 3 at the California International Marathon in Sacramento. I don't know the results from the others, but I suspect that the 2:13:23 winning time was one of the fastest, if not the fastest, winner this weekend.
