Nate Jenkins 7th at U.S. Trials!

Congratulations to Nate Jenkins (UML '04)(Saucony/GLRR) on his PR of 2:14:56 and 7th place finish at the 2008 U.S. Men's Marathon Olympic Team Trials. Nate bettered his qualifying time of 2:15:28 that he ran in February of last year in Austin, TX by 32 seconds on this NYC course that is considered to be at least 2 minutes slow. That means Nate's effort puts him most likely in the high 2:12 range. Nate also finished ahead of many elite athletes including the 2004 Olympic silver medalist Meb Keflezighi (Nike). Other local running studs finishing with very respectable races were Casey and Pat Moulton (out of Pelham NH)... Very proud of all these guys... Full Results Here.
