Rev. Arthur Joachim, 74, a veteran of 1400 career races is a frequent back of the pack finisher in many regional races. On this day, a concerned finisher offered Art some liquid called "JOLT (all the sugar and twice the caffeine) to help him through the 20 mile finish. Art was invigorated and went on to complete a 5th lap. He added two more miles after that to log 27 miles in 7:20. This was the first time Art has ever completed the marathon distance (time interpolated to 7:10 for 26.2 Miles).

Congratulations Rev Jock, we are inspired!
