I agree that there is no less of an accomplishment walk/running a marathon.
The example of finishing in 9 hours walking is a bit silly. Clearly, we are not talking about walking the entire marathon or even finishing in more than 3, 4, or 5 hours.
There are people running extremely competitive marathon times using the walk/run strategy. Jeff Galloway promotes this program and has used it in several marathons. He is an extremely accomplished runner that found a way to speed up his times and his recovery. Who could fault him? Who could say that he doesn't run fast? Need more examples.....Bill Rodgers won Boston plenty of times and guess what......he would walk too!
