Cowdrey leek finish with world records in 12- and 14-mile runs (3:52, 4:03, 1:59; both times in 2:02:39), and he then crossed the finish line at the top of the East Coast marathon in 2:04:54, just ahead of runner-up Jack Daniels (2:03).
On the second day at the World Championships in Philadelphia (3:0카지노 사이트2:26), Leek was one of a few to run in the same time as his sister, the late Cindy Leek of South Philadelphia, who ran the mile in 2:05:16, a little faster than Leek’s (2:02:58). Cindy, who also trained in Philadelphia, was the first female American to win the marathon at the championships.
At the 2011 World Championships, Leek was the top-ranked American at the 1 mile, 1:52 mark (2:03:18), and led the 3rd-place Americans that followed him in 2:57:54 (2:13:46), 4th-place Americans in 4:21:07 (2:13:55), and 5th-place Americans in 4:32:03 (2:23:42).

He has not lost and still runs competitively and with a smile and a chip on his shoulder.
In his own words on the World Championship day: “I c카지노 사이트an’t wait for New York to feel like home – if it’s really, really, warm out there. There’ll be a bit of rain, but at least it’s not raining and freezing outside. I know people are going to need a little rest, but I hope it’s not too cold to run.”
Leek has won races in the Atlanta Marathon and Boston Marathon. His last two years have been mostly success stories, earning second place at the Chicago Marathon and third place at the Houston Marathon in 2013. But in his only appearanc
