So, Jacob Seilheimer, the 358-pound beekeeper who was determined to run yesterday’s Boston Marathon? Turns out, he made it.
Seilheimer recaps his mission, in which he ran as a bandit, and finished dead last.
“In what can only be described at the most horrific experience of my life. I, Jacob Seilheimer, completed the Boston Marathon…” he writes.
“I’m going on the record as saying that I’ve never been visually-assaulted as much I was during the time period.
And it was not all in my head.
I got a few dozens NASTY looks from other runners. Some snickers. Some laughs. blah. blah. blah.
It’s been awhile since I’ve felt that uncomfortable.
However, there were quite a few runners that won’t out of there way to tell me congrats on making this far and good luck…”
It took him a whopping 9 hours and 45 minutes to make the trek from Hopkinton to Boston. Seilheimer also has posted photos as proof.
And what do you know? The elitist runners who degraded his journey still made it onto the course somehow. Well, except for the large number that dropped out in fear of the weather, of course. That might have been a convenient excuse for Seiheimer to back out. Luckily, he didn’t let it be.
