In the Chicago Marathon, I saw the towering figure of Luke Puskedra at the back of the lead pack. I remember noting that Luke should just stay out of trouble, and run his race.

And Luke Puskedra did run his race.

His five minute personal best comes a year after he gave up running for a bit. With the support of his wife and his coach, Luke Puskedra came back to running.

His 2:10:34 not only marks him as one of the top five qualifiers in the US Olympic marathon trials, scheduled for February 13, 2016, but makes him our RunBlogRun American Male Athlete for October 2015!

Thanks to the Shoe Addicts for this video saluting Luke Puskedra.
