Marathoner wins by a mile

Email

SPICER -- On Sunday Jeff Scovill ran around Green Lake -- twice.

Worn out? Not at all. Just training.

It was just a warmup for Monday morning's 12-mile circle jaunt, part of a marathoner's training.

The 36-year-old bank employee from Minneapolis streaked around the lake in 70-degree weather to post a winning time of 1:07.24. It's the fastest time since Joel Fenske of Paynesville made it around the 5,400-acre lake in 1:06.32 in 1998.
