First time’s a charm for former BYU runner Travis Fuller in Salt Lake City Marathon

Fuller, who trained with and got advice from some of the best known long-distance runners in the state, raced away from the rest of the men’s competitors and crossed the line in 2 hours, 27, minutes, 53 seconds Saturday.

“Just be confident, your body is going to hold up. Just people believing. Honestly, sometimes it’s just a head game. Everybody was just being so supportive.”

Fuller said that famed BYU runner Ed Eyestone was one of those he worked with leading up to Saturday’s marathon as well as fellow former Cougar Jared Ward, who finished sixth at the Olympic marathon in 2016.
