3 hours is 180 minutes. Add the extra 28 minutes to 180, to get 208 minutes in total that it took Geri to run the 26 miles. Now, divide 208 by 26, to get 8. It took Geri 8 minutes to run 1 mile.

3 hours + 28 minutes = 180 minutes + 28 minutes = 208 minutes 208 minutes / 26 miles= 8 minutes per mile
