Local speedster Kevin Pool stormed Philadelphia this weekend and wound up taking 2nd overall in the Philadelphia Marathon–just 6-seconds behind Ethiopia’s Folisho Tuko.

Tuko’s winning time was 2:19:16.

The winning woman was Mariska Kramer, of the Netherlands, in 2:35:46.

Although his 2:19:22 was a personal best for Pool, he was probably a little disappointed to finish a scant 22-seconds over the Olympic Marathon Trials qualifying time of 2:19:00.

Complete race results are here.

    Good catch. (I changed the time.) Interestingly, I caught and fixed it last night as I was proofing it. Not sure how that still slipped through. One of these days, I’m going to be able to afford a proof-reader.

    Congratulations to Kevin for a fine run!

    An outstanding performance by Kevin!
