One of these guys took over five hours to run a marathon. The other one didn’t…
For those who don’t know, the skinny one is former Australian marathon champion Steve Moneghetti.
I was lucky enough to hear Steve speak at a conference last week. He spoke brilliantly without notes for 45 minutes; not an ‘umm’ or ‘aah’ or ‘y’know’ to be heard. And his speech had been tailored specially for our group, so it’s not as if he just memorised a generic speech. Amazing bloke.
BTW, he let slip that in his prime years he trained about 8,500 km in a year. Wakes and I covered around 900km in training for our Marathon. No wonder it took us so long.
