Later that evening, Mr. Brown ran in the Atomic Two Miler night race in Monroe.  The night race began at 7:30 p.m.  15 minutes 56.07 seconds later, Mr. Brown crossed the finish line and won first place in his age group, Male 70 and over.  His pace was 7:58 per mile and speed was 7.5 miles per her.

Congratulations, Mr. Brown, on two wins in two marathons on the same day!!!
