Adam Condit ran the Lakeside Marathon (Milwaukee, Oct. 7) in 2:30:42. Adam states, “Felt pretty relaxed and good competing for the lead through 18 mile, then my hamstrings tightened around mile 9.  The hamstrings got the best of me as I hobbled and cramped through the last 6 miles.”  Adam looks forward to his first ultra trail 50km in November and in 2013 a solo run across the Grand Canyon and back to raise money for a non-profit delivering sporting equipment and positive change for impoverished and disadvantaged children.
