  1. Great article! It was cold in 1983 and a little rainy - and I took fifth in my age class, though I hate cold races. There's a guy in Japan that last year ran a 2:08 and who works 40 hours per week. I remember when Derek Clayton was asked if his then 12 year-old record of 2:08 would ever be broken and he said, "Of course. But not by someone working full-time like I did." So far he's still the fastest - the Japanese guy missed his time by a few seconds.
