On Sunday, Brontë Schmit completed the half marathon in one hour and 58 minutes after months of training.

The time, 5:45 a.m., glowed from my cell phone. Rain fell from the sky. Three vehicles blocked my car in the parking lot. I frantically tried to coordinate a ride. Yet, I couldn't be more excited to run my second half marathon.

Self-described as "demanding," Darius Richardson balances a full schedule of clients, along with graduate school and his own fitness.

Darius Richardson has always had good exercise form in the gym.

So good, in fact, that it turned more than a few heads. It also got the attention of Ali Prettyman, program coordinator for wellness and aquatics for Syracuse University’s Recreation Services.

“It was like an audition of sorts,” Richardson said. “He used to watch me in the gym, and I’d always think, ‘Who’s this mysterious man in the gym always watching me?’ Then he’d tell me there’s a few things you need to tweak, but I love the fact you pay so much attention to your form.”
