Ian Chillag: Marathoner, BPP Staffer, Awesome.
BPP Producer Ian Chillag finished the Boston Marathon in about 3 hours and 50 minutes — all the while Tweeting and taking pictures. Ian ran with his friend Amby Burfoot who, 40 years ago, won Boston. I caught up with him as he was boarding a train back to New York. (For the record, Robert Cheruiyot won the marathon in 2 hours, 7 minutes and 46 seconds. It's his fourth win and second in a row. Dire Tune of Ethiopia won the women's race in 2 hours, 25 minutes and 25 seconds.)
Ian will have a full report on tomorrow's show, in the meantime here's a post-race lowdown:
