Marquis Bowden is making some serious moves. The former college basketball player bounced around west coast colleges looking for the right fit. It never came. Little did he know that the journey would lead him to the perfect place to begin his running career. In 2017, Marquis began running and he was hooked. Not only did he pick up the sport quickly but the sense of community in his L.A. group runs hooked him for life.
In the last few years he debuted in the marathon with a blazing 3:09 before nailing a couple 10 minute personal bests. His goal in 2020 was to set a new PR at the Boston Marathon. While he wasn't able to that in the spring like he hoped he was ready to take aim last weekend anyways. Not only that, Marquis was able to blast through the 2:40 barrier with a solo effort that portends even greater things to come.
