Ga. Man, Colo. Woman Win Marine Corps Marathon

A 33-year-old man from Columbia, Ga., and a 29-year-old woman from Manitou Springs, Colo., were the top runners in the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C.

More than 32,000 runners started the chilly day at the Arlington National Cemetery to run 26.2 miles through the Nation’s Capital. The course stretched through parts of Virginia, across the Key Bridge, along Rock Creek Park and the Potomac River before weaving its way near various monuments in DC.

The runners concluded their race near the Iwo Jima Memorial.

Girma Bedada, 33, finished first in the men’s group with an unofficial net time of 2:21:32. Patrick Fernandez, 26, of Alexandria, Va., and Richard Morris, 25, of Burkeville, Va., finished second and third respectively.

In the female group, Kelly Calway, 29 topped others with an unofficial net time of 2:42:15. Gina Slaby, 32, of Virginia Beach, Va., and Emily Shertzer, 33, of Jonestown, Pa., finished behind Calway.
