It was only two weeks ago, but it will seem like like forever for Hooman Pedram and Genevieve Ryan.
The Inquiring Iguana thinks this isn't quite fair to Ryan, who completed the race in a respectable 1 hour 37 minutes 15 seconds. That was good enough for 431st place, about midway in the pack of all entrants.
As for Pedram … well … looks like the only heavy lifting he did that day was offering the ring. A check of the male finalists' list finds him missing.
Meanwhile, the grand old man of 8 Tuff Miles … the founder, originator, keeper of the flame, hardest working man in the event … Peter Alter.
He finished sixth in his age group (50-54) crossing the finish line with a time of 1 hour 14 minutes and 12 seconds. Also in the group – Luigi Costello, former owner of Verace Jewelers. He was third in his class with a time of 1 hour 11 minutes 28 seconds.
