"Super" finisher39

When I finished the marathon, the person who took off my number said to me, “Super!” He was saying that because we were so brave to finish.

Afterwards, we drove three miles back along the course to see the people who were still running. We saw at least twenty people still running! I had walked quite a lot, so what kind of speed could they have had?

At the end some people collapsed from the heat. Bill Rodgers saw one person at the finish and said, “Major dehydration!”
