Brian Reynolds is a double amputee and Runs 3:03:23 at the Chicago Marathon
I am so proud of Brian Reynolds, he ran a new personal best, 3:03:22 at the Chicago Marathon this morning. He is a double amputee and I think this is an American record. We didn’t make his ultimate goal of going sub 3 however. We battled Mother Nature all day, a fall(that was on me, I thought I was close enough, I was not) and some cramps but he never wavered and fought till the end. It was inspiring. During the 22nd mile, though, Reynolds fell, suffering a concussion and knocking his time down significantly. Always one to finish what he started, 30-year-old Reynolds went on to finish. Brian said, "Despite not reaching my goal today I have still run a personal record in every single one of my marathons," said Reynolds moments after the race. "Even on my worst day I have the motivation, determination and grit to dig deep and get to that finish line.” If you ever have a chance to guide I highly recommend it. Not sure I will be hired again but if given the chance I am there. Editor’s note: Michael Wardian is an international know marathoner and ultra marathoner.
