Gus DeMann loses Boston Marathon

Gus DeMannOle Gus DeMann, one of the early morning baristas at GBM, ran the Boston Marathon last week. Unfortunately, he lost. Big time.

Not only did he not finish in the top ten, he got beat by 372 other runners, finishing at 2:45.46. To put that in perspective, that’s nearly 3/4 of an hour behind the winner, which is about the time it would take me to leisurely stroll from downtown Northfield to his hometown of Dundas and back.

He’s evidently going to try again next year, according to this article in the Northfield News.

See the pre-race hype about Gus in this article on the St. Olaf news site: Boston Bound.


  1. Yep, Gus really blew it, considering that only 23,507 other runners finished BEHIND him . . . (good job, Gus!).
