Meeting a Legend on a Back to Back Marathon Weekend

Congratulations to Thomas Tan (MM335) who completed his second back-to-back marathons in a week: Roxbury Marathon in CT and Manchester City Marathon in NH.

From Thomas, “Still sore from last weekend’s back-to-back (Indianapolis + Bowling Green), I paid for this one. My right Achilles started to hurt and I struggled to run. It was not pretty but I was able to cross the finish line, thanks to the 6-hour pacer team.

Finishing my second back-to-back marathons in a less than week isn’t the highlight for me. It was meeting and running with the legend, Thomas Perri (MM7000), who was my pacer. He wouldn’t let me quit. And there’s no way I would dare to question his authority on the subject quitting.”
