Irvine runner with Cystic Fibrosis finishes L.A. Marathon

Aliso Viejo resident Tyler Polasek from Crean Lutheran South in Irvine took another big step by finishing theLos Angeles Marathon over the weekend.

"Tyler has Cystic Fibrosis, nevertheless, he ran an incredible time and accomplished something that many never thought would be possible," said Crean Lutheran cross country coach Tim Brink.

"Even with this condition he was still able to push through the pain and training and finish in a very respectable time of 3:11.20. Tyler plans on continuing to improve his marathon time and eventually phase into triathlons."
