Paul Ryan lying about his marathon PR bugs me. Lying about running a marathon seems like the kind of thing only someone who lies automatically and compulsively would do. I suppose it doesn't rise to the level of lying about military service, but it is still disgraceful. I think we can all agree that being honest and competing within the rules are fundamental in our sport, and I think the fact that we believe that makes runners and athletes dependable, worthwhile members of society. Lying about your time is like cutting the course, or just making it up and saying you've accomplished something you haven't.

Oh, and Sarah Palin ran a marathon in three hours and fifty-nine minutes, two minutes faster than Ryan's time.
