This is a bit of a “dry” spot for NFL news, which is why Pats coach Bill Belichick running a half marathon is something that is worth talking about.
Field Yates of ESPN Boston has the story:
During previous years, this weekend would mark the culmination of the NFL draft. However, with the NFL pushing the event back into early May, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick spent the morning where he was born, Nashville, Tenn.
He was there to run the Nashville Country Music Half Marathon, finishing in 2:36:46 while donning bib No. 34479. The race concluded at LP Field, the stadium for the Tennessee Titans.
As Yates notes, the NFL draft has been pushed back a few weeks this year, which is what gave Belichick the opportunity to run this half marathon in Nashville. Yates later says that Belichick has actually run a full marathon in a previous year.
