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

elapsed time of 3-hours 40-minutes 35-seconds.
