what planet are we on?

How old is Mary Slaney now, reports on the wire have quoted her as saying, "she is currently preparing for a marathon, with her goal of lowering Radcliff's 2:15WR?

Pretty sure the quote stopped right there.

Check the NYT website:

Lastly, let me rant about one final thing related to this entire Mary Decker Slaney episode that I can't believe. It's the fact that the 787 word article on Slaney appeared in The New York Times in the first place. The article wasn't about how Slaney was being inducted into the Millrose Hall of Fame; rather, it was about how Slaney was planning on moving up to the marathon. There would be nothing wrong with that until you get to the kicker. Mary Decker Slaney stated in the article that she would eventually hope to go after the women's world record of 2:18:47.

If the story was written about the Millrose Games, then the WR certainly wasn't 2:15 at the time. And if the quotes were gleaned last fall pre-Chicago (a possibility), then the 2:18 was the WR at the time.
