Palindromic numbers and Boston Marathon Winners
I finished my run today and totalled up my mileage for the year in my running log and saw that I had an exact palindromic total: 1777.71. That doesn't happen to often.
Then I sat down to my computer and opened up this email.
Am Robert Cheruiyot the current winner of Boston marathon and fourth
in this year chicago
please can it be possible for you to invite one of my friend to your
race please i know its very late but i can be very happy incase you
wish to consider him.
let me know if you can agree to welcome him i can also be willing to
accompany him and to run 21km just as a training,all i want to do is
trying to introduce him to international running if it can be better
and if its possible for you to help me out to pay his ticket i can try
to pay my own ticket if you invite us.
We already have the Usa visa but we can need the invitation letter at
i will be very happy incase you offer to help me out
There is a completely possibility this email is fake. There is also a complete possibility he sent this to every RD in the nation. But it is still pretty cool to have one of the fastest marathoners in the world email you.
The question remains, does he realize the 2006 Drake Well Marathon was run entirely on a track? LOL!
