Monday's Boston Marathon Last Leg On Naperville Man's 50 State Run Quest

John Fisher is a late bloomer when it comes to running marathons.

When he crossed the Boston Marathon finish line in just over five hours Monday, the 65-year-old Naperville man completed his 12-year journey to run a marathon in every state in America.

For much of his life, running was the last thing on Fisher’s mind.

The only reason he ran cross-county as a junior at East Aurora High School, he said, was to hang out with his friends who were more dedicated to the sport.
