The Case For Marathon Training
Knees be damned. There's something to be said for stamina.
A 37-year-old marathon runner who had just put in 10 kilometers in a London park chased down a 17-year-old mugging suspect.
The teenager collapsed after two miles while Glyn Roberts was still going strong, The Mirror reported.
"He kept turning around and had this stunned look on his face," Roberts said. "He couldn't believe I was still chasing him. Eventually, he slowed down and fell to his knees. He was knackered. He begged me to let him go, but that wasn't going to happen, not after I had run so far."
Update: Making a similar case for weight training, here's a grandma.
