Kevin Thomson, one of our Concordia Seminary students ran the Chicago Marathon today, his first, and he finished under 4 hours. He and a few others representing Concordia University Chicago (his alma Mater) have been training for this race for almost a year. They ran as the CU Chicago Marathon Team and raised money for the school. Here's a Chicago marathon photo of Kevin taken during race.
Kevin drove to Chicago on Friday, ran 26 plus miles today and then got in the car and drove back to St. Louis. I imagine he's a bit stiff after all that running followed by all that sitting.
40,230 runners were in the race today.
