This guy just ran 7:12 pace for 100 miles...on an indoor track!

And fast. Don't forget. Fast. That's three Boston qualifiers in a row, followed by another 21.4 miles at the same pace!

Indeed

But Jerry would rather apply that gift for a faster marathon time

Dude looks OLD!! I would never have guessed 39. He looks mid to late 50's, seriously! Maybe all his ultra training is prematurely aging him?

You have a point I did not read his age and thought him to be in his 50s - must be too many miles indoors.

Well, he definitely has no baby fat. (And hardly any other fat, for that matter.)

That prematurely gray hair and receding hairline doesn't help, either. 

Still maybe he was one of those kids who could buy beer at 16. Wink

Hey, watch your mouth!  Mid to late 50's does NOT garner an 'OLD' in capital letters.  Why I oughta...... Smile   But yes, he does look older than 39.
