photo of Tripp Shenton after Yeungling Shamrock MarathonPRBQ—What could be better at age 53! And no four-leaf clover required.

That’s probably what CRR Tripp Shenton is feeling like today. He ran the Yeungling Shamrock Marathon, held today in Virginia Beach, in a personal best (PR) of 3:28:59. That time was also a Boston-qualifier (BQ) for Shenton, a professor of civil engineering at the University of Delaware. He finished among the top 10 percent of the field, placing 277th out of 2788 finishers. Plus, what could be cooler than having your name printed right above your race number?

Congratulations! On to Boston.
