Compston, wife of AFA founder Amy Compston, was 428th out of 8,640 runners who competed. He ran a personal best of 20:34 on the sunny morning. That put him among the top 5 percent of finishers.
Chris has been training to run six marathons in the next eight months with his wife Amy. They begin that trek together in May. Amy gets a jump on marathon season Monday when she competes in the Boston Marathon for the second year in a row.
“I know the training made a big difference in my time,” Chris said. “I could have had an even better time because I had a lot of kick left at the end.”
Compston passed 30 to 40 competitors during a strong stretch run.
Amanda Evans also finished the 5K for Team AFA.
