Jacksonville Bank Marathon 2012 | The Beat Scotty Twan Story
Beat Scotty Twan is about two brothers, 26.2 miles and one victor at the Jacksonville Bank Marathon. This epic showdown has all of the working parts to be a fusion between a Rocky movie and a Greek tragedy. The pieces line up like a 15th century chess board. First we have the younger brother, a faithful athlete with all the training techniques, nutritional enhancements, and instructors that money can buy. Being the younger of the two and having the greater stride Scotty should be on paper the undefeatable champion in this showdown with both Vegas odds and common sense on his side. As we know though, in a race like this heart, guts, determination, whatever you want to call it has a place. Eric, Scotty’s older brother and running nemesis, has already proven that sheer “inner drive” has its place in this universe. Overweight, out of shape, with little to no resources for training, this ex-Marine has already beaten Scotty in their last challenge in the River Run a grueling 15k race that at the onset no one would have upon inspection of the two runners given Eric a chance. However, despite all odds, Eric pulled it out after following Scotty for most the race finally taking him on the bridge and barely beating him by seconds at the end. This epic rivalry already has thousands of followers picking one side or the other. So now the question is, does focused scientifically enabled training and athletic prowess win a race or does sheer guts and determination, and cheeseburgers do it? Well this author is betting on the human spirit.
