The marathon runner

Joe is volunteering here for a youth baseball game. Joe is not only a full-time farmer, but also a full-time sports fan. When one hears the word marathon in Elkton, the first person one thinks of is Joe Sudtelgte. He is not only a marathon runner, but one of the best in the country. Joe has run the Boston marathon twice. It is not only one of the oldest and most prestigious marathons in the country, but it is also the only marathon one has to qualify to enter.

Lance Armstrong ran the New York marathon this year in just under 3 hours. He ran a great race and did a good job. Joe has run marathons in 2:29. Now, I know they were not the same race or same year, but one can see the class of runner he is.
