Running with Geb

7

I rarely do continuous runs over 20 minutes anymore but sometimes I’ll throw one in on Sunday evenings. Tonight was such a night. Whenever I’m out on one of these runs, I always wonder what it would be like to run with someone like Morcelli, Bekele, Hachim, or better yet, Geb. Would they even be winded at my modest pace (~6:00-6:40 / mile). Heck, Geb can run 26.2 consecutive miles slightly faster than my ONE mile PR. Would they be able to run that slow? Surely guys like that do warmups faster than my weekend warrior attempt at distance running. On the other end of the spectrum, what about a guy like Mo Greene or Asafa Powell…..would they be able to keep up with me for 3 or 4 miles?
