I don't often share links, but this news article from Runner's World today about Paul Ryan was interesting.
Short version: Last week Paul Ryan claimed he's run a sub-3 hour marathon. "A two hour and fifty-something."
But of course there are no records to be found to support this.
In fact, nothing indicates he has ever run a marathon.
The article says if his claims were true, he would beat John Edwards (who has a 3:30 PR) as the fastest politician on a national ticket.
And the article notes that John Kerry in '04 was likely caught in a similar lie, claiming to have run Boston when no such records could be found.
This just supports my ever-deepening belief that politicians are lying sacks of $hit -- and this applies on both sides of the fence.
Man, I am ready for the elections to be over. And living in Texas, I don't think I've seen a single commercial yet to indicate the office of President is up for a vote this year, it's just all over facebook, which is enough to drive me crazy. I mean, I'm all for people voicing their opinions, but it's all so negative, so irrelevant, and frequently so false.
