Obama counselor John Podesta ran in Sunday’s 35th NCB Capitol Hill Classic 10K, an annual fundraiser to benefit the Capitol Hill Cluster School, a D.C. public school with more than 1,000 students.
Podesta, an avid runner, finished 475th — posting an exceptionally respectable 51.09 time (Net time 50.0) — in the race overall, which is quite something considering there were 2,675 runners. And, in the 65-and-over set, he beat the second-place finisher by almost four minutes.
Seems he wasn’t the only Podesta running on Sunday. The D.C. race has a tie-in race with Camp Phoenix in Kabul, where another Podesta, Air Force Capt. Gabe Podesta, who’s in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, bested his father by one minute and 21 seconds.
