This was special. I tried to catch him on TV — to no avail. But, I followed his impressive progress online. The 1:14 time for the ‘half’ got me real excited. That was brilliant. I was e-mailing his time to folks that understand this stuff.
Yes, his father ‘John Tuttle’, ran the Boston Marathon multiple times. But, having Drew run it seemed different. I have known him since he was a kid.
Saw him running last week and wished him luck. Was ‘talking’ to his Mum, via Facebook Messenger, multiple times this morning ahead of the race. She was so glad the rain had stopped/
So, a BIG day for Drew. I am hoping to get some pictures of him running.
Coming FIRST in a marathon! And pretty impressive time too — 2 hours 40 minutes. Just 20 minutes shy of the winning time at the 2018 Boston marathon.
He is young. Very early 20s. I have known him since he was about 12.
I see him running most days. Sometimes I am also running, but he makes me look like I am walking backwards. Extremely thin and superbly fit. He would run 12 miles a day without thinking about it while I suffer running my 3.5 miles.
Family of exceptional runners — father & two sons; Drew the elder of the two. Father, John, is the long distance running coach at our local high school. He has run the Boston Marathon numerous times — including the year of the bombing. This year Drew will be running. I am so excited and happy.
I have talked to Drew about the Olympics. That might now be possible.
This is so great.
He runs by our house most mornings while I am still in bed. I know he is going by because the dogs go crazy.
