When Brett Gotcher is in Houston, big things happen. In 2009, the Flagstaff, Arizona-based athlete ran a personal best 1:02:02 to take third at the U.S. Half Marathon Championships. A year later, he ran the fourth-fastest American debut marathon of all-time, clocking 2:10:36 at the 2010 Houston Marathon. Since then Gotcher has quietly flown under the radar, however, and has been relatively quiet since his second at the U.S. 25K Championships in 2010.
