26.2 miles! He MADE IT!
Drew's first marathon completed in 3 hours and 32 minutes! He had quite a fan club show up to support and encourage him. We were all very proud of him. He said the wind was cold, and the toughest part was right about mile #20 as he ran across the South Knoxville bridge. He hit the proverbial "wall" as he ran the 3 mile route through Island Home, but then Sam Shaunessy jumped out the "pace car" and ran the last 3 miles with him. Sam was gracious enough to allow Drew to run "solo" into Neyland Stadium to enjoy his moment. I am amazed by that kid! Way to go, Drew!
