Arlington Runners Dominate At Weekend Marathons

Two Arlington runners cleaned up at marathons in Delaware and Pennsylvania on Sunday.

Arlington resident and international shipbroker Michael Wardian, coming off his fourth National Marathon win in March, ran the fastest Delaware Marathon ever with a time of 2:26:22.

After finishing the race Wardian, who is training for an ultra marathon in South Africa, decided to keep going.

“I’m going to go do another hour, hour and a half run right now,” the 36-year-old told the Wilmington News Journal.

In York, Pa., Arlington resident Toni Diegoli was the fastest woman in the Bob Potts Heritage Rail Trail Marathon by more than 11 minutes.

Diegoli, 31, finished with at time of 3:06:08, or 11th overall. The next-fastest woman finished in 3:17:14.

Diegoli talked to the York Daily Record after the race and tried her best not to gloat.

“I started out pretty well and didn’t really see any other women,” said Diegoli, who won the North Central Rail Trail Marathon in Maryland in November. “I don’t mind, because I kind of like running alone. Besides, there are always some guys around you.”
