Schock comes in second

Freshman Congressman Aaron Schock is the second-fastest runner in Congress. The 27-year-old Schock was bested by 60-year-old Bart Gordon, a Democrat from Tennessee. Via the Murfreesboro Post:

Congressman Bart Gordon won the “Fastest Member of Congress” award in the Capitol Challenge Charity race, running the 3-mile course in under 19 minutes despite high winds and rain Wednesday…. Gordon retained the “Fastest Member of Congress” title by finishing the race in 18 minutes and 49 seconds, off from his record-setting best of 16:59 in 1995. The second fastest runner from the U.S. House was Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL) who finished in 20 minutes and 2 seconds.

It’s good for Schock to come in second for a change. Since he can’t run for President for at least 8 years, this will give him a challenge to work on in the mean time. I imagine he’s already started training for next year’s race.
