Ultra-marathon man

Combat-search-and-rescue pilot Capt. Jason Tomas, 920th Rescue Wing, Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., finished his first 50-mile ultra-marathon journey in 14.42 hours. It began at mile marker 50 on Marathon Key and ended at Higgs Beach near the southernmost point in the continental U.S., Key West. He added 4.5 hours to his total finish time because he took frequent breaks to beat the heat. He thanks his personal first-aid crew, wife Kaili and 11-year-old daughter Alani, for providing him ice to help him get his body temperature down. He estimated that he burned 13,000 calories at the Keys100. (Courtesy photo Kali and Alani Tomas)
