I will have to remember that. I can't tell you how many times when I was doing long trail runs (marathon or 50K) when I would get to that point where it was ONLY 5K or 10K to the finish and I'd think that anyone could walk a 5K/10K. Of course in races of those distances my legs were always hurting like heck by the 20 mile mark, if not sooner.
