The ersatz shoe-buckles are a nice touch.
I’m glad you appreciated them.
Hey Brian, speaking of the marathon, I’m curious if you’ve updated your model and prediction for the fastest possible marathon? I really liked that post and was discussing it with someone the other day. Rereading it I see that at the time the record was within 76 seconds of your theoretical maximum but has since dropped to only 40 seconds away. Has that produced any change in your model?
Yes I did a quick check, and the updated prediction comes to 2:02:19. So the ~1 minute drop in the marathon world record since I wrote that post has been surprising, but not very surprising.
