Daugherty Passion Project: Running the Boston Marathon with Mike Wagner

Senior consultant Mike Wagner began running in 2014 to lose weight for his wedding. What started as a way to exercise became a passion he continues to cultivate today that resulted in him qualifying for the 126th running of the Boston Marathon.

Mike’s first half marathon occurred a month before his wedding, and since then he has continued to plan and train for long races like marathons.

When Mike ran the Boston Marathon after qualifying in Indianapolis, he experienced a race day like no other. Held on Patriots’ Day every year, the Boston Marathon goes through 8 different surrounding towns, each with its own culture, and was unlike any race he had ran in before.

Daugherty wants to congratulate Mike on his achievements and hopes he sees continued success in his passion for running!
