Arlington marathoner Michael Wardian has a couple of new medals for his extensive collection. Wardian, 36, placed third in the 50K World Championship race in Galway, Ireland, earning a bronze medal on behalf of the USA.

Just a week later, on Sunday, Sept. 4, Wardian won the Kaua’i Marathon in Hawaii. His time of 2:30:52 just barely missed the 2:30 mark, which would have earned him a $15,000 bonus prize. Another Arlington runner, Michael Zinn, placed 17th in the race.

Finally, on Sunday, Wardian placed third in the Parks Half-Marathon in Montgomery County.

    we have such great people in arlington. and they aren’t worried about who drivers where and how they park their car. they work hard and excel and this is just awesome.

    As someone who has run under 2:40 for the marathon I continue to be amazed at how consistently Michael can run week after week at such a high level. Congrats.

    Have him tested for performance enhancing substances. Maybe it is all the drugs in the Potomac –> http://bit.ly/atb6lf
