Young runners willing to commit to a trek of more than 13 miles are to be commended, regardless of how fast they finish. But Reinhardt Harrison, 10, of Falls Church, expected he had offered a finish for the record books. But he didn't.
At the Alexandria Running Festival's half-marathon last week, Reinhardt had a time of 1:35:02. According to The Washington Post, that's two minutes faster than the existing record for a 10-year old, set just a few weeks earlier.
