Howdy! Here’s a quick recap of the weekend. It’s a little of this and a little of that…
Eric Gillis took a shot at Jerome Drayton’s Canadian record (which has been around for 39 years), but he fell short by about a minute. Gillis ran 2:11:20, and the longstanding record is 2:10:09.
However, a world record was set in Toronto! Michal Kapral joggled the half marathon in 1:20:40. For more on joggling, be sure to check out Wild Juggling.

Empire State Marathon
The Empire State Marathon tested out a new course this year. It was a blustery day and the winning times were a little slower than past years. The men’s race was won in 2:42:34 and the women’s race was won in 3:13:27. I’m looking forward to hearing some feedback on the new course.
