Congratulations, Councilman Kwame Brown! The councilman finished the Marine Corps Marathon in 4:40:04, for 10,977th overall. Marathon’s are tricky business, and anyone who manages to finish this feat of endurance gets my respect and admiration. 26.2 miles is a long darn way. Fortunately, yesterday was as beautiful a fall day as I think we ever get in DC, so I’m sure he had a good run.
Interestingly enough, Mayor Fenty was registered, but chose not to run. Perhaps he was saving his energy for a mayoral challenge?
