Congratulations to senior Ryan Gordon for completing the annual Chicago Marathon Oct. 7. Gordon completed the 26.2 mile race in three hours, 51 minutes and nine seconds. Gordon began minimal training in the spring and with the encouragement of his parents, began intense training nine weeks prior to the race.

“I’m happy that I did the race,” Gordon said. “It was a really cool experience running the marathon with my parents, and I am thinking of doing another one in the spring.”
