In his first marathon, Friesema triumphs at York event

The 3rd Annual YMCA York Marathon and Half Marathon

The origin of the term “beginner’s luck” probably had nothing to do with running a marathon.

For York’s Andrew Friesema, however, that expression strangely rang true.

Running in his first competitive marathon Sunday, Friesema led the field of more than 85 runners to capture the York Marathon men’s title after posting a time of 2 hours, 54 minutes and 4 seconds. That time also qualified him for the Boston Marathon.
