[April 19, 2007]  You might have seen Dan Hemenway, Lincoln College athletic director, running up and down Woodlawn Road during the past year. The hard work paid off last weekend, when he completed the 26-mile Spirit of St. Louis Marathon in four hours and 20 minutes.

Hemenway said he was happy with the results. "It was good, and what an unbelievable experience," he said. "The atmosphere was very supportive, and I felt humbled by complete strangers cheering every runner on. I would advise for any runner to go out there and experience a marathon because it truly is phenomenal."

This was his Hemenway's first marathon race, and he placed 124th in his age bracket. Hemenway said the course had more contours than where he trained.

"I would like to thank my children, Daniel and Grace, and my parents and sister, who cheered me on during the race, as well as the many people from Lincoln who supported from afar," he said.

Hemenway started training in December for the April event.
