I know someone at ESPN who forwarded me this email, received over the weekend in her work email:

How cool is that? Apparently he raced 8-10 people, giving them a small head start, and "passed them all, running the last 15-20 yards with his arms spread like an airplane, weaving to the right and left. Then he straightened up and ran across the finish line pumping his chest." Sounds like an awesome experience.
