If you had to pick any member of the Super Bowl XLIX-winning New England Patriots team to finish the Boston Marathon, who would it be?
Probably not offensive lineman Ryan Wendell.
But there he was Monday, running for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and finishing at 5 hours, 54 minutes and 31 seconds. And he had the perfect plan to celebrate finishing the grueling race.
Leading up to the race, Wendell discussed his training process — which began from scratch in October, 2017 — with Boston.com, and the topic of his post-race plans came up. The foundation he is running for is having a party at UNO Pizzeria, and the ex-Patriot was planning on making himself quite comfortable there.
“I’m already thinking about crushing a whole pizza by myself,” he said.
Good for him.
Wendell was one of many runners finishing the exhausting race in dreadful conditions, and we’re sure many of them had a very similar plan.
