Newport Harbor High wrestling coach Dominic Bulone competed in the OC Marathon Sunday, finishing in three hours, 41 minutes, and 21 seconds.
Bulone was the 143rd runner to cross the finish line in the 26.2-mile race out of 1,040 finishers. Assistant coach Josh Ready ran a half marathon in 2:18:33. Wrestlers Josh George and Eddie Garcia also joined Bulone for five miles. Bulone spent six months training hoping to qualify for the Boston Marathon with a time of 3:15:59 or better.
However, Bulone said he started too strong, and was running about 27 seconds per mile faster than he should have been running.
