in most races you are on your feet for several seconds a few times per lap.
some races are significantly more, but it's an odd race that would have you running even 10% of the time, in my experience (mid-atlantic racing and watching pros on DVD)- maybe some oif those muddy portland nationals races were worse, but it's not typical
