Bud Wisseman Makes His Mark In Boston

Retired TVA Engineer Completed His 25th Straight Boston Marathon On April 21

Bud Wisseman doesn't believe in doing anything halfway.

The 74-year-old retired TVA engineer has been running since November 1978.

He would be the first to admit that his pace has slowed considerably in recent years, but he did something nobody else in Tennessee has ever done last week when he completed his 25th straight Boston Marathon.

His time of five hours, 31 minutes and 31 seconds was his slowest marathon ever, but crossing the finish line in the world's oldest and most prestigious 26-mile, 385-yard footrace was an incredible accomplishment for this slender fellow.
