European Champion Richard Ringer will run his next marathon in Hamburg on 23rd April. Organisers announced this today during a press conference with the runner, who became Germany’s first male marathon gold medal winner in the long history of the continental championships.

The track and field season is heating up. I hope to see you at the OHSAA State Track and Field State Championships in June or another race this Spring. This year’s OHSAA Track & Field Championships will be a lot different, as the meet will not be held at the OSU Jesse Owens Stadium. Instead, it will be at the following three locations: Division I at Hilliard Darby High School; Division II at Pickerington North High School; Division III at Westerville North High School.

My first marathon was the Glass City Marathon which used to be held on Father's Day.  As a freshman at Ohio Northern University I entered with a few of my track and cross country teammates.  My longest run at the time was 12 miles, but was in shape from cross country and track and finished 20th in 2:51.  The following year I ran 2:34ish, then I won on my third try a year later in 2:27:17 and after my senior year I finished second in 2:24:00.

 

For the past nineteen years I have been a member of the Granville Village Council, for two years I served as the Vice Mayor and for two years I served as the Mayor.
