NYC marathon simulator…pit the winner vs. P. Diddy to see just how damn fast the elite runners are.

To drive the point home even further, I pitted P. Diddy against the winner of the M75 age group (I assume that’s males, aged 75). They were neck and neck until the last few miles when the old guy pulled ahead and beat P. Diddy by about 8 minutes or so.

All is not lost…P. Diddy did beat the M90 winner handily.

Creating the Battle of the Hubertuses was fun. Hubertus Kuehn torches the first half of the course while Hubertus Wachter stages an amazing comeback. Hubertus Koster and hubertus Klomps make interesting race competitors as well. Good work-time fun!
