Very impressed with his personality and what he doesn't do - stretching, cross training, etc. Runs what I would call a moderate amount given the amount of time triathletes spend training.

Started using a coach and benefited after all these years of running without one.

Not a high leg lift nor getting his feet off the ground - I would wonder about tripping - yet he's done trail runs.

Wow - humble brag - if I could run under 3 hours again for a marathon at my age, I might quit the cycling and swimming...

Indoor Triathlete - I thought I was right, until I realized I was wrong.

Impressive. Both his attitude and performances. I'm sort of half his age and trying to shave off 10' of my marathon PB towards a sub 3h marathon and he does it over and over again :-)
