Videos: Mississippi State's Dan Mullen Completes The Boston Marathon

The 120th edition of the Boston Marathon took place today, and this year's race had a bit of SEC football involved. Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen, a New Hampshire native, ran in today's race, completing what he says is a life-long dream. Mullen began training about a year ago, and finished in pretty impressive time today.

Well done coach. Mullen is 43, and coaches a team of elite athletes, and most of his players probably couldn't come close to pulling off what he did today.
