Spring PE 1262 Marathon Class slide show features all-stars
The spring 2012 course offering, PE 1262 Marathon Class, enrolled 87 students, each with the goal of completing the Eau Claire Marathon in Wisconsin. Every student who started the May 3 race finished. The group has released a YouTube slide show of their race experience.
One Marathon student was working on an important project last spring, but found time to compete in the race. That student was Prof. Roger Rusack, a U of M physicist who has worked for the last two decades on the search for the Higgs boson particle (nicknamed the "God particle"), whose potential discovery was announced in July. Dr. Rusack appears in several of the slides.
PE 1262 was taught by graduate assistant Christopher Lundstrom and Dr. Stacy Ingraham, lecturer in exercise physiology.
