On Sunday, Nov 4th, 5 graduate students from the astronomy department ran the Manchester, NH Marathon or Half-marathon: Maria Drout, Chris Faesi, Luke Kelley, Meredith MacGregor, and Ian Czekala. All finished with smiles on their faces and glints in their eyes--with 3 of the competitors completing their first long-distance race. We hope this inaugural "astro-marathon" becomes a tradition, and we welcome future participation from students and faculty in the department!
