One mile at a time

Only 0.5 percent of the U.S. population has run a marathon, but anyone can do it. I’m proof of that. On Sunday Oct. 4, I ran the Portland Marathon. It was my second 26.2 mile race and I finished in 3 hours, 30 minutes and 27 seconds, which placed me 474th out of 5,710 runners. And I’m nobody special. I’ve always loved sports and not long after I could walk I was throwing a baseball in the yard with my dad, but no one would ever call me an athlete or for most of my life a runner. I wasn’t on the track or cross country teams in high school. In those days, to me, running was nothing more than a punishment.
