Local runners compete in Boston Marathon

Local runners compete in Boston Marathon:

McMullen was pretty easy to spot in the race.

He sported white hair with a bright red/pink mohawk and an alt-red suit that matched.

There’s a story, of course.

McMullen modeled it after actor/musician Jared Leto, who played the Steve Prefontaine character in the movie about the legendary University of Oregon distance runner.

“Beyond being an actor, he’s an incredible musician and he wrote this song called ‘Closer to the Edge’ which is very inspirational running-wise to me,” McMullen said.

“In a montage of a world tour his band, ‘Thirty Seconds to Mars,’ did, his costume is the haircut I had today.”

That’s adorbs.
