Congratulations to John

UPDATED WITH PICTURES
My friend John Pierce ran in and completed his first marathon this weekend in Charlotte, N.C., in the Thunder Road Marathon. At top is a picture of him from the back crossing the finish line. His daughter and her friend ran the last few yards of it with him. At right is a picture of John during the marathon -- I think he knew we would want proof. He is the one at the far right in sunglasses.

He finished 563rd overall out of 1018 total entrants. He was 71st in his division and finished in 4:27:48 (chip time) for an average of 10:19 per mile.

Here are the complete results. You can see John's split times by looking under the marathon results.

Congratulations John.

Great Job John

I know it requires alot of training.
If you enjoy running I think you might like to do triathlons it would be a whole new challenge for you.
