How fast is this German speedster? How about 12th overall at the 2007 Boston Marathon (2:19), eight consecutive wins at the Seattle Marathon, course record at the Portland Marathon (2:17:21), and he has won every ultra he has every entered, including multiple USATF 50-mile championships at White River 50 (6:32 best), the 2006 American River 50 (5:58!), and Way Too Cool (3:18!), and many more.
Gosh, now that he's in "top" shape, I wonder what he can do? ;-) I hope to see him on the ultra circuit.
