Aspiring Olympian Completes Boston Marathon
Nick, our Earl Carter fellow for the 2023-2024 academic year, recently completed the Boston Marathon! The race was one of the deepest fields in Boston Marathon history, including the current world record holder for the marathon. He finished in the top-100 amongst the world’s elite runners in a time of 2:26:55 (5:37/mile)!
What's Next for Nick?
Nick aspires to qualify for the US Olympic Trials, which he will be training for the Chicago Marathon in October to attempt to reach the qualifying standard. While training, he will also be fundraising for Lurie Children’s Hospital as a medical student to incorporate his passion for medicine and overall well-being, especially in pediatrics.
