Our Common Good

Just like Snow Snooki, Paul Ryan loves to run, and apparently, he loves to lie too.
Ryan told Hugh Hewitt that he ran a sub 3:00 marathon — ”under three, high twos. I had a two hour and fifty-something,” he said.
Funny thing is that Runner’s World can’t find any record of Ryan’s super-fast marathon running.

"Ryan’s name does not show up in the 1991 race results provided by Grandma’s. Runner’s World checked 11 years of results for Grandma’s Marathon, from 1988 through 1998, and found a finisher in the 1990 race by the name of Paul D. Ryan, 20, of Minneapolis.
Ryan’s middle name is Davis, and he was 20 in 1990. The finishing time listed was 4 hours, 1 minute and 25 seconds.”

Oh what a tangled web we weave…
UPDATE: The Ryan camp has issued a statement (also noted by karen marie in the comments) from Lyin’ Ryan:

"The race was more than 20 years ago, but my brother Tobin—who ran Boston last year—reminds me that he is the owner of the fastest marathon in the family and has never himself ran a sub-three. If I were to do any rounding, it would certainly be to four hours, not three. He gave me a good ribbing over this at dinner tonight."
