3:00 - Gerad Mead
What started as a way to lose a few pounds slowly morphed into a complete lifestyle change — in short, running. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and I ran my first marathon in 2005 at the Twin Cities Marathon. Since then I've completed more than 70 marathons and ultras — it seems each one teaches you something new. I've paced numerous marathons with goal times ranging from 3:00 to 3:25. I'm looking forward to pacing the 3-hour group at the Eau Claire Marathon!
