Now this is impressive.

What makes it more impressive is their time - 3:31 is a very respectable marathon in running shoes and clothes.

I'm calling shenanigans on this picture -- as a runner and Marine, I don't think it's possible to run a full marathon in boots and utilities (nevermind with a pack) in 3:30. That's 8 minute pace! Plus I'm supposed to believe that there are three guys in the Army that could run 26 miles? Not sure I buy that.

A dude pushed his wife in a standard wheelchair through a marathon in 3:15 which has to be about as tiring as carrying a pack and wearing boots.

While these might be the only three people in the Army who could run 26 miles, I guarantee you won't find three Marines who can count to 26.

At least not without taking off their boots.
