Race to the Finish

Joining more than 38,000 runners from around the world, Barry University Adjunct Professor Dr. Alan Miller was triumphant as he crossed the finish line November 2 to become the winner of the ING New York City Marathon in his age group (60-64).

Miller, who teaches in Barry’s School of Adult and Continuing Education (ACE), finished the race in 3:08:03. A certified ChiRunning instructor, Miller, 60, teaches “Understanding and Coping with Stress” at ACE’s Davie campus and has been an avid runner for years. He ran his first marathon in 1978 in Hawaii and has since competed in numerous races. This was Miller’s 26th New York Marathon and his best age group finish. He competed against more than 1,100 runners in his age group to be declared the 2008 winner. Older age group winners were presented with a crafted silver award from Tiffany’s.
