Wow...she walked a marathon in a lil over 5 hours??? OUTRAGEOUS!!!

That said...I know a few older woman at my local park (in their late 50's early 60's) that can WALK faster than I could RUN/JOG at that time. I just started running at the time, so we'll see how I hold up against them in the Spring...I bet they'll still give me a WALK for my money! Haha..

Not if you train

My wife and I walked a marathon in 2001 in 5hrs. 43 min. We also trained 6 months with a group...

I think I can beat this lady (if I was training) on time but NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! could I ever walk 101+ marathons in my TOTAL LIFETIME let alone in one year like she is doing!

Her time of 5 hours and 26 minutes gives her a walking pace of just under 5 miles an hour. It's a brisk pace to be sure but it's not racewalking speed.

Incidentally five miles an hour is my walking pace when I'm not trying to push myself.

Don't know. But I walk at close to that pace all day everyday on the job so it's definitely possible.
