Holiday doubles are the way to do it.
I just noticed your profile comment that you once ran the last mile of a marathon in 21 minutes. It made me feel better! :-) Happy Turkey Day!

Yeah, thanks for a putting a little perspective to Jake's "epic blow-up".
I have to say I'm a little more worried about earning the pies, cookies, and candy than the turkey!

I really did that at Top of Utah. I hit 25 miles in something like 2:38 and then finished in 2:59. Hamstring cramp about 300 yards from the finish. I couldn't move - I literally went down like someone shot me and it was something like ten minutes before I could even walk. It's funny now. Not then though. You have no idea how much rage was coursing through me watching dozens of people pass me.
