This is just awesome! Thanks for the link. But I still think Dean
Karnezas is the greatest runner of all time.

I'd say Haile Satayin is a real-deal contender for the title of
greatest 50+ runner. 20th in the 2004 olympic marathon.

Again Lance, get your facts straight before you start spouting off:

Your post is old news on this forum that we've all discussed. My post
was nothing more than republishing content Yahoo published _today_,
that's all. How exactly did I "spout off"?

1. You claimed Wolfgang Schwerk had made up his own event; the truth is
that this was the tenth edition of the 3100-mile race set up by the Sri
Chimnoy Marathon Team.

2. You claimed he had tried to masquarade a press release as news; the
truth is that the press release given out by Lanxess was clearly
presented as one and that Yahoo had published it in its press releases
section.

3. He claimed he had branded himself as the "World's Greatest Long
Distance Runner"; the truth is that those were the words of the
anonymous press release writer.

4. Last but probably least, you may have wanted to imply that he was
somehow involved in an unethical business arrangement with Lanxess or
at least one that was less ehtical or more hypocritical than athletes
who wear their sponsors' shoes and apparel.


This wasn't a good day at the office for you, so to speak - this was
one of your weakest posts (with the worst
content&argument/spin&spouting off-ratio). Besides, I would've expected
you to feel that you've pretty much gnawed out this general subject by
now.

FWIW I'd rather read more and more detailed information about your
training, about how your body and mind respond to it - and, in general,
more about your own unimitable approach to running and racing and more
about the things you like and love and less about the things you find
hyped or overrated.

Donovan - Satain is a great runner, but his real age is around 44.
Due to the difference in the Ethiopian calendar ( their year is 7 years
difference from ours), there was a mixup when he
emigrated from Ethiopia and his official year of birth was given as
1955. His real year of birth is 1962.

Or at least something he knows about. His propaganda technique(ideas,
facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to
damage an opposing cause; also : a public action having such an effect)
to create discussion grows old and make him foolish. One would think he
would tire of that role. Rhetorical.
