Penning runs Boston Marathon
May 11, 2023
Nicholas Penning, formerly of Hulett, can now say he's run the Boston Marathon.
Penning started running around junior high for track but started to seriously consider the sport later in high school after his 1600-meter state championship win during his junior year in Hulett.
"Running truly took root in me during my college years where I developed a greater appreciation for the sport," he says. Even after he graduated college, he still had the desire to train for long distance races and more specifically, the marathon.
Penning says there are a few reasons he wanted to run the marathon.
