Brantley's ARRS is INSANE.. and Larry Greene beat him by a minute in that race, when Brantley was in top form.

1985.

citrus bowl half, talks about the mistake the year prior.

Quote
Unfortunately for Jacksonville's Larry Green, somebody involved with the administration of the 1984 Citrus Bowl Half-Marathon just didn't do their job. Green, a good regional runner who had never set any national records, ran the race of his life on the flat, fast course through the streets of downtown Orlando last December to set what appeared to be a half-marathon (13.1 miles) world record with a time of 1 hour, 1 minute and 27 seconds. But when the course was measured by an official of the sanctioning national

Green's record was negated by problems he had absolutely no control over. In order to make the starting line more accessible and convenient, a decision was made by the Orlando Bureau of Recreation to move the start ahead to in front of the Lake Eola Bandshell on Rosalind Ave. Unfortunately, no adjustment was made for the distance lost in the change.

1987.

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1987-12-06/sports/0160370182_1_isphording-menton-marathon-team

orlando sentinel gives me more stuff to search :D

Mary Level-Menton ran a 1:16 half, 1.5 years after getting into road racing.

Quote
Level-Menton, who began road racing 1 1/2 years ago in order to lose weight, finished sixth in 1:16:27.

Quote
Level-Menton, 24, of Seminole, was more concerned with her social life than anything else four years ago. She ran track in high school at Port Townsend, Wash., joined the team at Oregon State as a walk-on but quit running in 1981. After moving to Florida, Menton, 5 feet 3, decided to begin training again after she ''ballooned to 115 pounds.'' Eighteen months later, she has a 35-minute 10K, 53:13 15K and a 2:43:35 Twin Cities Marathon to her credit.

^^ after 18 months of training.. insanity.

Eddy Souza, who i've mentioned here before, got 3rd OA at "Death at DuPuis Last Man Standing" .. an ultra where you run 5k every hour, for as long as possible.

seems like he got to 111 miles. I mean he has work & a fam so not sure if he stopped because of responsibilities.. apparently the other top two guys were battling well over 30 hours.

1st OA did 129 miles.
