Headlines: Brian Finishes NYC Marathon

After driving 2,400 miles to watch the Eagles fall to Clemson Saturday, I am finally home and can update you on the other "important" BCI sporting event this weekend.

Like many other BC fans, Brian came up with an excuse Saturday to not go to the game. On Sunday he ran the NYC Marathon in a very impressive 3:58:49. I saw Brian at about the 23 mile mark and he looked like he was going to die. Fortunately though, he didn't, he finished, and he even found time to give the local CBS reporter an interview. Future Mrs. Brian also ran Sunday and she looked far better while running and I never feared that she might collapse or not finish.

I am impressed that Brian broke 4 hours and accomplished his goal, but just as we criticize Chris Crane, Brian could've done better. Brian went out too fast. He ran the first half of the marathon in 1:52:14, then slowed his pace considerably to barely break 4 hours. His average mile was 26 seconds slower after the halfway point than it was in the first half. Brian came in 10,058th place, but with a better strategy, could've easily came in 9,000th or better.

Most importantly, as most BC students have watched the Boston Marathon before and seen men run by with bloody nipples, Brian showed no signs on bloody nipples and suffered no other serious injury.
