100 marathons

Australian Bob McNaught talks about the challenges and joys of running.

When civil Engineer Bob McNaught labored for five hours to complete his first marathon (26.2 miles) in Boston in 1988, he had no idea that he would ever try that "caper" again. Three years later, he almost halved his Boston time in a marathon in Berlin, which that year was celebrating the joy of a newly undivided city.

On April 17, 2000, Bob completed his hundredth marathon (and his thirteenth Boston race) in under three hours, and afterward told us that he planned to keep running marathons for as long as he enjoys the challenges. "For me, there's nothing quite like the thrill of finishing races and running them in faraway places."
