*WARNING, 5 HOURS OF RAW FOOTAGE*

I finally got around to uploading these videos. Despite the 5 hours of just repetitive cubing, there's a lot of funny commentary in here and even some beat boxing if you hang around long enough. Again, couldn't have done this without Michael NotKevin Young, Everett Kelly, and Cameron's cubes. They were awesome.

Here is my official race results page: https://www.brooksee.com/rcc/results?pk=182762

Here is the video footage of the Guinness World Record for "Most Rubik's Cubes Solved Whilst Running a Marathon" 839 cubes in a 4:56:02 marathon:

You know what, I actually had to go through this footage again to get a better count as there might have been some counting errors. I made it through the first 1:33 and counted 6 more than where we were at in the video. Guinness will have the final count once they review the footage but this means that the official count might be closer to 850 which is cool. We figured if anything even if the count was off I knew that I did at least 839.

I am sure Phillip can run a marathon in way less than 5 hours when he's going for speed :p But that gives you less time for cube solving, which means you want to go as slow as you can for this record. The previous record holder ran it in about 5 hours, so Guinness set a 5 hour limit on the attempt.
