Moe does the Boston Marathon

The owner of Skinny Legs in Coral Bay ran in, and completed, the 111th
Boston Marathon

Moe Chabuz
, 57, finished 13,191st in a field of about 20,000.  His time on the course was 3-hours 41-minutes 19-seconds,
five minutes better than his time in the 2006 Marathon.  His pace this
year was  8.27 miles an hour. Chabuz also ran in this year’s 8 Tuff Miles on St. John, finishing 41st.

Organizers reported one other Virgin Islander in the race, about
a minute ahead of Chabuz.  Jessica U. Chung finished 12,311th with an
elapsed time of 3-hours 40-minutes 35-seconds.

Race organizers said 99% of runners who began the race completed the 26-mile course. The start was moved up a few hours because of a windy/rainy/snowy nor’easter
which was pushing up the east coast.  There were fears some runners
might encounter hypothermia, and about 30 did, according to the
Associated Press.

  1. Actually, the start (of the Marathon)was moved up because they wanted runners and support staff to be able to get home earlier than in previous years. The weather was just an unfortunate coincidence.
