KELLER — Craig Ottman not only has the 35th Cowtown Marathon title under his belt but also has a day in Keller declared in his honor.Mayor Pat McGrail declared March 19 Craig Ottman Day during the city council meeting that day.“Craig is not only a Keller resident, which makes him very special, but he runs our trail system virtually every day,” McGrail said. “And he trains so well that he went into Fort Worth and won the 35th annual Cowtown Marathon ... This is something to be proud of.”Ottman, 30, is one of more than 12,000 runners Feb. 24 who took the challenge, completing the course in 2:36.21. Fort Worth resident Elizabeth Eder, 25, claimed the women's title, finishing the 26.2-mile course in a record 2:46.09.Ottman said he has been running for about 10 years.“Winning the Cowtown by far was my biggest running accomplishment,” Ottman said. “It was a really exciting day and one that I will never forget.”Ottman said he grew up in Keller and graduated from Fossil Ridge High School in 2001.“After college, my wife and I decided to come back to Keller,” he said. “Not only is Keller a great place to live and raise a family but it’s not too bad of a place to train either.”Ottman said just about all of his training was done on the trails in Keller’s park system.“As citizens, we are really fortunate to have so many miles of trails that are separated from the traffic,” he said. “I push my son in his stroller for a good portion of my training. It’s real nice to have a place to go out for a six mile run and not have to worry about crossing streets.”Dona Roth Kinney. Director of Parks and Recreation congratulated Ottman and told him the city is proud to be able to provide his training grounds for the marathon.
