WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW)-- A Wausau man is celebrating after finishing the Boston Marathon.

Connor Ahrens, who works at Greenheck Fan, qualified for the famous marathon in Bean Town.

He says he's been running his whole life and still gets advice from his high school and college coaches as he trained for the most famous marathon of them all.

"Originally, since my training is kind of gone a little downhill the last week or two weeks or so, I was just hoping around right around 3:20 for sure, sub 3:30, compared to 2:55 for Wausau, that would have been incredible on this course," said Connor.

Ahrens says Greenheck has been great in letting him have time off to go to Boston and with some help with financing the trip.
