Hobart student runs in Marine Corps marathon

Lou Guard '07 completed the U.S. Marine Corps annual Marathon Oct. 29 in Washington, D.C.

Starting in the “Gold Wave,” he finished in the top half of the group of nearly 21,000 participants, completing the 26.2-mile course in just over five hours.

A history major with a public policy minor, Guard is part of the group of HWS students currently completing an off-campus semester in D.C., and has been training for the marathon since April.
