I am a huge fan of Paul Ryan (I got phone calls from my extended family, asking if I was going to work for the campaign, after Ryan was announced as Romney's pick for VP). I am also a runner. I have run in several marathons. My times have varied greatly. Twice I stupidly ran while injured, I finished in 5+ and 4+ hours. My other times have varied between 3:30 and 3:48. I have never, ever "misremembered" running in less than 3 hours. And if this is the only marathon he ran, he would not "misremember" his time (my first marathon time was 3:48). I cannot say how disappointed I am in Paul Ryan. Over something so trivial and stupid to fudge about. Why? As S211 wrote, "Just tell us the truth. We can handle it."
