3:06 is an excellent time! I ran long distance for about 13 years, beginning when I was 43 years old, so I have not run for the last 16 years. Due to my running, I have only had one knee repaired, but last Spring, at age 71, I had both hips replaced. The cartilage was completely gone in both hip joints, causing considerable upper leg and back pain. Running is a great form of physical exercise, being good for your mind as well; just rough as hell on all joints below the waist. I have friends my age who trained harder and longer than I ever did and they are not suffering at all; I should have stuck with swimming. Hey, enjoy the Pilsner!

Wow!! I've never run a marathon but it took me about four hours to do 16 miles. I am impressed.
That being said, you could be using that time to practice your banjo. OK, so maybe you play while you are running. I'm still impressed.
If I'm not mistaking, your Saga SS-10P is a 17 fret (short scale) banjo. I had one of those once and had a lot of fun playing it. Kind of sorry I traded it for something else now. Well, that's the way things go.
Keep picking! Keep running!

Thanks everybody! Cottonmouth, I've had some problems (runner's knee) with my left knee, and today it really hurts! But I know how to deal with it, there are very effective stretching excercises that "cures" it. PruchaLegend, the Saga is indeed a short scale banjo. I purchased it to have something that could go in a suitcase, but it's a fun little banjo. I think The Boog has one, check out some of his songs on youtube!

Nice work man! I did my one and only in 3.5 and I swear I would never do it again....and I mean that. Working now on your 4th. Go get the 2hr 45min! You can do it. Kalle, from one athlete to another nice work ol' chap.

Kalle is Sweden's fastest banjo player, no doubt!
He is one of Sweden's best Jever-drinkers too, I might add.

Jens, a sufficiant intake of fluids is essential for participants of any sport...especially running! ;-)
