Alejandro Belmares Top Finisher from Nevada in Boston

Posted by Alejandro Belmares on April 16, 2018 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

The 122nd Annual Boston Marathon would be one of the most memorable days in the long history of the race. On a day that featured freezing temperatures, wind gusts of 30 mph, and a torrential downpour, runners were tested in every possible way to cross the finish line.

Alejandro Belmares would negative split the course and run 2:52:08 finishing as the top runner from the state of Nevada on a day that featured freezing temperatures, torrential downpours along with crazy headwinds.

To him and all the finishers we congratulate you on a mighty performance in such awful conditions

This picture does little justice to capture the kind of person you were.

Two years ago we lost a teammate, runner, training partner, but above all else a friend.

Keep on running in Paradise Johnny.
