Mark Buciak (COM ’83, MBA ’88) has run 52 marathons, including 29 consecutive Boston Marathons. This fall, he’s in a different kind of race: He is in the running for Chicago Athlete magazine’s Athlete of the Year.
From Buciak’s biography on the Chicago Athlete magazine website:
Most people who complete their first marathon slap the “26.2” bumper sticker on their car and pat themselves on the back for a job well done. Mark Buciak is a different story. Not even heart surgery could stop this man from continuing his streak of consecutive Boston marathons. Seriously.
Vote for Buciak, who ran track for DePaul, or your favorite Chicago athlete.
Buciak was honored as the magazine’s May Male Athlete of the Month, which qualified him for the Athlete of the Year nomination.
