Marine Corps Marathon: Ware wins in a runaway
Third last year, Dengersa takes women’s crown
Wardian followed more than four minutes back in 2:23:46, with Patrick Fernandez of Alexandria another three minutes behind in 2:26:37.
Dengersa ran only 2:45, but she has had a busy month. After winning the Army Ten-Miler, she then recorded a personal-best 2:37 at the Baltimore Marathon two weeks ago. And she said she is not done with marathons this season.
“Maybe I run in Richmond in two weeks or Philly in three weeks,” said Dengersa, who was born in Ethiopia but is a Turkish citizen who trains in Washington.
Emily Shertzer of Jonestown, Pa., caught Shiferaw in the closing miles and made a run at Dengersa, coming up 27 seconds short in 2:45:55. Shiferaw was third in 2:47:30 as the top 10 women all run faster than 2:57.
Nearly 22,000 started the 26.2-mile race, including Drew Carey, the comedian and host of “The Price is Right.”
In a word, Carey called his first marathon a “nightmare.” Hoping to run sub-four hours, Carey cramped up miserably and struggled to a 4:37:10. But he was good-hearted about his morning at the finish as the Marines played “The “Price is Right” jingle.
“I’m happy I finished, I didn’t quit,” said Carey, a former Marine who has lost a sizeable amount of weight through running. “Sure, I’m disappointed with my time. I was ahead of the four-hour pace guy but at 15 miles, my quads seized up. I had to stop three to four times.”
Nonetheless, Carey said he would give the marathon another chance, no kidding
