Another attempt at setting a treadmill marathon world record fell short this afternoon. Kim Duclos gave it a try, but after she won the Martian Marathon in Michigan on Saturday her flight to Boston was delayed so she didn’t get in to Boston until late at night. Then Sunday she inadvertently went to the Hynes Convention Center, the usual location of the Marathon expo, before rushing through unfamiliar streets to the World Trade Center for a late start to her run.
Kim’s split time for the half-marathon was 1:34. She made it though 15 miles before becoming disoriented and dropping out.
