He Ran HOW Fast??

Newport Marathon

Newport, Oregon
June 4, 2011

My friend since junior high ran the marathon in 2:36:25 at about a 5:58 pace.

And this is how he got second place overall.



Excuse me while I pick up my jaw. It dropped on the floor. Yeah, that is faster than my half marathon PR that I set in Eugene. Of course he ran the Eugene half this year in 1:13:47 which is around my 10K PR.

I'm in awe!    ........I have A LOT of work to do.
