It's the oldest marathon in the country, and on April 16, 2018, a Minster man gets to run with some of the best in the world.

Greg Zumberger spends his days working as a school counselor at Apollo Career Center, but he spends his free time running marathons. He qualified to run in the popular Boston Marathon after finishing the Glass City Marathon in Toledo with a time of 2 hours and 56 minutes. In order to qualify for his age bracket, he needed to run a marathon in under 3 hours and 10 minutes. Zumberger hopes to finish within the top 1,000 runners but says he is less concerned with how he will place in his age bracket and instead more focused on enjoying the experience.

"This is kind of a bucket list kind of thing for marathoners because you have to qualify to do it, and then just the history of the event," says Zumberger. "It is kind of crazy, so we're gonna find out and try to take it all in and see and enjoy the moment."

Zumberger will be running in the third wave of marathoners with bib number 2757.
