Daryn Parker placed second in the Pikes Peak Marathon

Daryn Parker of Manitou Springs said he and Matt Carpenter ran together for the first seven miles of the Pikes Peak Marathon. But when Carpenter made his move, Parker had no response.
"Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong," Parker said. "It wouldn't have made any difference today. Matt put a move on me when I was still feeling good and I couldn't counter. He was the better runner, as usual. I'll tell you, it's intimidating to run behind him and be huffing and puffing and you can't hear him breathing at all."
