Radio Iowa: Grassley likely to "run again"
Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa
As noted last week, I have a friend in DC who ran in the Capital
Challenge and saw Senator Charles Grassley cross the finish line.
Yesterday, at the conclusion of Grassley's weekly conference call with
Iowa radio reporters, I asked him about the race and Grassley
expressed some discomfort with not improving his time. "You know,
after nine years of doing (that race) I should do better than the
first year and I'm not doing better because my first year was 27
minutes (and) 20 seconds," Grassley said, "and now this one was 29
minutes and 29 seconds." Grassley ran the three-mile course this year
with a faster time than in 2007. "By about half a minute, so I'm not
as bad as I was last year," Grassley said.
