Politico‘s Jake Sherman for finishing his first marathon in less than four hours no less. It was the Rock n’ Roll Marathon, which managed to shut down a good portion of the city on Saturday. Quite an accomplishment. And even though this post could well qualify him for the Dept. of Bragiculture, completing a first marathon in less than four hours is actually something to brag about.
Since it’s unclear what running shoes he wore for the big race, we’re taking wild guesses.
I ran my first marathon in 3:55. Fueled by the band, allman brothers, phish and the grateful dead. My goal was to break 4 hours.
