Apparently, I am not the only person who saw a parallel between marathon fibber Rosie Ruiz and marathon fibber Paul Ryan. None other than Nobel Laurette, Paul Krugman took the time to opine why the Ruiz-Ryan connection is more than an exaggerated time for the Grandma’s Marathon. It seems to be more systemic for the Republican vice-presidential nominee.
If you have only run one marathon in your life (which is far more than I have ever run or considered running), I suspect that you would know that a sub-three hour time is a “wow!” statement and a four hour time is a job well-done. Only a pronoid would think that no one would check up on that time. Under three hours on your first and only marathon makes you a superman. Lying about it, makes you, well, n0t to be trusted in anything.
