Joe Whelan took home the distinguished honor of winning the Fourth Annual Black Friday Mighty Mile on Friday.
Whelan, a native of Hamburg, captured victory by eating four hard shell Mighty Tacos and running four quarter miles in a time of 8 minutes and 7 seconds to top the field of 46 runners.
Ryan Poley, a winner of the first two Mighty Miles, finished second, while David Jasinski, Jesse Mang and race founder Mike Selig finished third, fourth, and fifth, respectively.

Here are photos from the event. As you will see, I focused a lot more on the fun part of the event – the eating.
