Paul Ryan says he misstated marathon claimHe released a statement correcting the record after Runner's World magazine found evidence he had completed one marathon and finished in just over four hours.Ryan told radio host Hugh Hewitt last month he had run a "two hour and fifty-something" marathon. That's a pace of less than 7 minutes per mile for the 26.2 mile course - extremely fast for recreational runners.----Ryan said he should have rounded his marathon time to four hours, not three.http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/09/01/13611931-pau...If his actual time had been 3 hrs 30 min, you could "round" to either 3 or 4 and be equally inaccurate, but Ryan's slightly sub 3 hour claim would round to 3. The record's "slightly over 4 hrs", would round to 4, not 3. By no rule of rounding that I have seen, would a 4+ time be rounded to below 3. Are the numbers of his purported "budget" equally as accurate?Steve
