First time ever Euro Puppy USA went to the Boston Marathon. It was a lot of fun and an experience we will never forget. No, there were no dogs running the Marathon. It was Sandor Joo from Hungary who ran under the Euro Puppy USA flag.
Sandor is a well recognized marathon and ultra marathon runner in Hungary. As many other marathon runners' dream, his dream was to run on the Boston Marathon which is probably one of the top five most recognized Marathons in the world. Euro Puppy USA was happy to sponsor him on this memorable experience. His bib number was 2118. He began the race from the second coral which is where the best 2000-2999 runners were.
He is 40 years old and his dream was to be within the first 300 in his devision and overall 1500 out of the 26000+ runners. We are very proud of him. Sandor finished 289th in his division and was 1302nd overall.
Here are a few photos of Sandor and the race. Please leave a comment if you also ran on the Boston Marathon in 2008.
