Boston.com - Republican Paul Ryan now says he didn’t run a marathon in less than three hours as he claimed in a nationally broadcast interview. The vice presidential hopeful acknowledged Saturday he had misstated his marathon time by more than an hour. He released a statement correcting the record after Runner’s World magazine found evidence he had completed one marathon, in 1990, and finished in just over four hours. Ryan told radio host Hugh Hewitt last month he had run a ‘‘two hour and fifty-something’’ marathon. That’s a pace of less than 7 minutes per mile for the 26.2 mile course — extremely fast for recreational runners. Ryan said he should have rounded his marathon time to four hours, not three.
Oh man I love politicians. You misstated your time? No you didn’t bro. You flat lied. It’s like if I shot a 104 in golf and said I shot an 88. Just blatant unadulterated lying. And I love his explanation how in hindsight he should have rounded his marathon time to four hours not 3. Gee ya think? Is that because you ran a 4+ hour marathon? Plus who are you trying to impress anyway? Nobody gives a fuck that you ran a marathon. That’s what squids do. And maybe most importantly I never understand how politicians think they can get away with this shit? They have to know everything they say will be examined and re-examined under a microscope. That’s what makes it even more outrageous. Like of all the things to lie about to say you ran a marathon an hour faster than you really did? The balls on this guy.
