Say you took 2-miler Aric Van Halen (9:34.44)
http://www.mtsacrelays.com/archives/200 ... 07F221.htm
and 800m runner Wynton Marsalis II (1:58.13)
http://www.pe.pomona.edu/womens/trackfi ... esults.htm
and lined them up for a one mile race.
Who would win? Would Aric start off at a bass-heavy, hard-driving pace that would cause problems with his lead (vocal) late in the race? Would Wynton the 2nd flutter ahead and behind his running rhythm seemingly with no race plan -- leaving him to improvise the last two laps?
What would their finishing mile times be? Would they, upon reflection, have rather met at 1600m instead? Most importantly, what would their post-race conversation include?
These questions and more....
