Shocking news in the world of sport and classics

A Tely 10 participant claims he has proven a tale from ancient Greece wrong.

The guy who wore bib 472 Sunday says Aesop's fable The Tortoise and The Hare doesn't apply to actual competition.

Slow and steady doesn't win the race! It doesnt even put you in the top 1,900, says the runner, who writes this blah-g and finished 1,944th overall.

He ran the 10-miler without stopping, clocking a time of one hour, 47 minutes, and 44 seconds no where near his 90-minute goal.

A Smelly 10 for me, he says, I stunk.

Not surprisingly, he doesnt mind people confusing his results with competitor 1,857s.

That Stephen Bartlett crossed the line in 83 minutes!

Despite being disappointed in his Tely time, the blogger intends to keep running and setting unrealistic goals.

No matter how badly I suck and even though it looks like next year Ill finish in the 2,000s Ive got to let this bug run its course. Hopefully it never does.
