William Graham, a student concurrently pursuing a MBA and BS in mechanical engineering, ran in the 122nd Boston Marathon on Monday. The 23-year old finished 29th out of 14,142 males who completed the 26.2-mile race.

“My teammates and I from the Iowa State Running Club, trained for the Boston Marathon all through the winter,” said Graham. “Seeing our hard work pay off on race day was an extremely rewarding feeling. It was awesome to represent Iowa State in Boston.”

He will complete his degrees at Iowa State next month.
