Ryan Marathon Time Not Verified; Story Will Have Stronger Legs

After his now-infamous GM plant closing "false" PolitiFact FUBAR, this story won't die over the Labor Day weekend:

Paul Ryan Has Not Run Sub-3:00 Marathon

Updated 12:29 am 
It turns out Paul Ryan has not run a marathon in less than three hours—or even less than four hours.
A spokesman confirmed late Friday that the Republican vice presidential candidate has run one marathon. That was the 1990 Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota, where Ryan, then 20, is listed as having finished in 4 hours, 1 minute, and 25 seconds.
Ryan had said in a radio interview last week that his personal best was "Under three, high twos. I had a two hour and fifty-something."
