Lauren McLean: Not all running requires campaign promises.

Editors' Picks

Any politician who runs for something other than an office is impressive, but Lauren McLean's participation in the Boston Marathon was truly a special feat. The investment of time and energy toward training competes directly with the same resources necessary for campaigning. Furthermore, a marathon in less than four hours is something even Oprah Winfrey can't claim to have accomplished. We applaud McLean for setting an example of superior fitness to inspire the citizens of Boise in pursuit of their own athletic goals.
