It may have been just one week after he ran another marathon (the Wineglass) and he may have been in the middle of battling a terrible head-and-chest-cold, but Kelly successfully once again ran the Tyler Rose Marathon.
Finishing the marathon, no matter how ugly the run was, meant he stayed on the coveted Gold list – the list of runners who have run the marathon every year since it’s inception.
And that was particularly poignant this year, since post-run we learned it was the FINAL year of the Tyler Rose Marathon.
Gold list status maintained for Kelly and John.
And the end of a 7-year streak of running a marathon in Tyler.
