2009 - SmoothToe New England Marathon




On August 30, 2009, David O'Meara completed his 2009 event, the SmoothToe® New England Marathon ...One Mile at a Time,  in a cumulative time of 2:07:09.14 at the age of 46.

His original goal was to finish the 27 races (26.2 mile distance) in less than 2 hours 11 minutes (<5 minutes per mile on average). His focus was on recovery and avoiding injury throughout the 61 day event. In fact, much of his free time between races was spent with his Chiropractor and Masseuse.

This second major event for David, increased his race count by 6 races and decreased his recovery time between races from 162 hours to 54 hours on average compared to his previous year's 20/20/20<5@45 accomplishment.

Originally from the New England area, many of the stops along this journey had personal significance to David.

To ensure accuracy of the event The Last Mile Racing Company, headed by Charlie Olbrias, was responsible for the exact timing, proper measurement, and course selection of the entire event.
