This game is a submission for Ludum Dare 39View submission

WARNING: This game requires careful timing and extreme patience. This is a rapid-pressing track & field game where you're task is to run an entire 26.2 mile marathon. 


How long will that take? Who knows, the current world record for the world's fastest marathon run is 2 hours, 2 minutes and 57 seconds. While I cannot guarantee the distance you travel and speed in-game will reflect reality, I would be surprised if you could complete the game in under a marathon.


Controls

If you do, provide a screenshot, else then let me know how far you got before either giving up or passing out from lack of energy.

You have three options:

* Press A and D keys in sequence.
* Press Left and Right keys in sequence.
* Press A and B on a gamepad in sequence.

The faster you press, the faster you go.

Other controls include pressing T to switch your distance from miles to meters, and R will reset the marathon.

Welp I will say you weren't kidding when you said it was a long game. Which isn't bad. The Graphics were simple yet fitting, along with some sounds that help you keep pace when you press the keys. Though I will say I just wish there was a bit more to do in the game. Like my example of QWOP from my video, some other obstacles or controls that you have to use occasionally. Which would make it more of a constant challenge, rather than one about patients. 

Otherwise nice work. Let me know if you ever decide to expand upon the game.
