Looks like Michael Wardian, a local Arlingtonian who is one of the top "megamarathoners" and ultra runners in the U.S. He had the best finish for an American and for anyone not from a tropical country at the Marathon des Sables last year. That's a 6-day, 156-mile run race across the Sahara Desert. (He warmed up for the race by running two marathons and a half marathon during the 4 weeks before the main event.)
He has won U.S. titles at the 50-mile and 100-mile distances.
He mentioned that he also does some cycling, but running is his main sport.
