Odenton's Henry takes Marine Corps 17.75K in Va.

Former U.S. Army runner Steven Henry of Odenton won the Marine Corps 17.75K on Saturday in Prince William County, Va. Henry covered the twisting 11.03-mile course through Prince William Forest Park in 1 hour, 4 minutes, 25 seconds. "I guess I am in a lot better shape than I thought I was," joked Henry, 38, a retired infantry soldier and five-time Marine Corps Marathon finisher who previously completed the marathon while a member of the Army's running team. "It was challenging and very tough, but I really enjoy it." Jeremy Lynch, 33 of Springfield, Va., was second in 1:05:08. The race, named for the year the Marine Corps was founded, had 1,749 finishers.
