Yorktown High School students Hannah, 16, and John Yoest, 14, from Arlington, Virginia completed the Suntrust Richmond Marathon on November 14, 2009.

Hannah credits her crew training for her sub-six hour time.

“Our crew coach [Carol Dinion] tells us to put in the miles and to be focused,” said Hannah.

John reports that high school sports provide, “the discipline and practice and concentration to finish strong.”

There are two kinds of marathon-ers: competers and completers.

Those who run to finish and those who run for time.

John and Hannah wanted to run a modest measured pace to finish and — encouraged by marathon-experienced parents — finish without injury.

They ran a 13:12 minute mile X 26.2.

They crossed the finish line together with a time of 5:47:24. 5,188 competitors registered for the marathon; 3785 finished.

Hannah, is the Vice President of the Junior Class at Yorktown High School and member of the Varsity Crew team.

John is President of the Freshman Class and member of the Junior Varsity Baseball and Freshman Football teams.
