Axelrod makes Ryan joke using marathon time

Top Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod joked over Twitter on Tuesday that Paul Ryan would finish the 63 days left in the presidential campaign season in 42 days.

The jab is an allusion to Ryan saying he ran a marathon in under three hours when his actual time was just over four.

A pair of running outlets, and Runner's World, quickly called foul on the claim and eventually revealed Ryan's actual time.
