Congressman's staff races toward marathon finish line

Don’t be alarmed if you see some sprinters running through the halls of Longworth — they could just be training for their next marathon.

Four staffers from the office of Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) were among 24,000 runners who participated in the 2011 Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco, Calif. last weekend.

Honda workers Danielle Duong and Albert Beltran ran the half marathon, while Mike Hoa Nguyen and Andre Nguyen ran in the full marathon.

We hear they all crossed the finish line and earned some pretty sweet swag – engraved Nike Women’s Marathon necklaces from Tiffany’s. 

The big race benefited the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
