Gabriel Gomez Training for Boston Marathon

Posted: Apr. 18th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Although Gabriel Gomez is currently in the running for a senate seat is (to be voted on April 30th), he's also training for the Boston Marathon, which he will attempt on April 13th. This is an interesting choice as training for a marathon takes up so much time that it's hard to focus on anything else, much less running for a senate seat.

Republican Senate candidate Gabriel E. Gomez, hoping to showcase his physical prowess on the campaign trail, will run the Boston Marathon, just two weeks before the primary on April 30.

“My goal is to start it and finish it and have as much fun as I can,” he said Monday, adding that he would not pass up the opportunity to campaign along the route. “I’m sure I’m going to be shaking hands during the race.”

Gomez, a 47-year-old private equity investor and former Navy SEAL from Cohasset, said he qualified for the April 13 race by running the 2011 Smuttynose Rockfest Marathon in Hampton, N.H., in 3:22, just under the 3:25 he said he was needed for runners in his age group.
