Seventy-three year old Butch Weisenbeck, of Rimrock, AZ did more than win his 70 plus age category in the Sedona Marathon held Feb. 2. He also has the fastest time in categories for runners ages 60-69. A speedy 9.36 minute mile running the grueling 13 mile half marathon with 792 runners from all categories.

The Sedona Chamber of Commerce announced that more than 2,600 people registered for the Sedona Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K!

Supported by his wife Theresa, 3 of his 5 daughters, a sister and brother-in-law along with his Bowenwork practitioner Teresa Peterson administering Sports Bowen off track he started the run in great spirits. He returned to the starting gate 2 hrs-5 min- 4 seconds later and then waited for the posting of the results.

Butch started running only one and a half years ago. He said it was very painful just running a 100 yards at that time. A few months ago a family friend introduced the Weisenbeck’s to Teresa and Bowenwork in Flagstaff, AZ. He said, “that is when things started looking up.”

Butch commented on Monday after the run, “Bowenwork helped me to recover quicker and relieved pain in my knees and back as I trained and the day after the run I felt good with no after effects or pain. Bowen definitely gave me the edge to run with no pain and to run faster.”

Butch now has the results from the marathon and found that out of the total 792 half marathon participants he placed 215th and of all male participants 116th. The runner in his category coming in second followed a good 6 minutes behind and completed the run in 2 hrs-11 min.- 24 sec. so he is 266th overall.

Running events for the future are in the planning and his family looks forward to more great runs for grandpa Butch. -30-
