Dr. Ruhlman Finishes the California International Marathon (CIM)

Congratulations Dr. Ruhlman for completing the 2013 California International Marathon in Sacramento, CA on December 8, 2013!

According to the CIM’s web site, “The CIM was founded in 1983 by the Sacramento Running Association to bring a world-class running event to the Sacramento area. The same course developed then provides runners with a very fast, point-to-point, net-downhill marathon.

Tracing a historic route used by the gold miners during the 1849 Gold Rush, it begins at the Folsom Dam,passes through semi-rural suburbs into bustling midtown Sacrament, and has a spectacular finish in front of the California State Capitol. The CIM’s 26-mile, 385-yard distance is certified and sanctioned by USATF (#CA07004RS),and therefore is a Boston Marathon qualifier and an Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier. It is frequently a regional or national USATF Championship event as well.”

In Dr. Ruhlman’s words about the race, “”Great race, great people and a well organized race. The conditions and the distance pushed my limits as always, but it was really rewarding to cross the finish line.”Dr. Ruhlman’s official time for completing the marathon was 03:16:25!Congratulations Dr. Ruhlman and way to go!
