There oughta be a law...

So the world-famous Fremont Fun Run 5k was held last Friday the 6th and if you haven't seen the results, well...they're a bit sad and depressing. People that run 2:15 marathons and qualify to run in the Olympics for countries that they don't even live in, should not, I repeat, SHOULD NOT be able to run a 14:48 5k. If you're that fast at one distance, you shouldn't even get to race at any other distance. It's just not right.

And yet, there's Uli Steidl, 38-time winner of the Seattle Marathon, running a 14:48 Fremont 5k. Don't worry, I'll run the numbers for you...that's a 4:54 pace. Holy Crapoly.

Nice job, Uli.
