Anthony Costales didn’t compete in his first marathon just to run 26 miles, 385 yards.
The former Fairfield High standout ran in the California International Marathon on Dec. 7 with a goal of reaching the qualifying time for the next United States Olympic Marathon Trials.
Costales had to cover the course, which ran from Folsom to Sacramento, in 2 hours, 18 minutes or less. He did just that – with 12 seconds to spare.
