He also set a course record in the race’s fourth edition.

New Jersey native Justin Scheid was the first runner to come across the finish line at the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon last weekend in Orlando. The 27-year-old set a new course record, clocking 1:11:47.

Brazil’s Valdir Camargo was the second runner to finish, while third place went to Donald Hanigosky of North Royalton, Ohio.

Scheid logged an approximate 90-second improvement over the old course record.

“Around 5 or 6 miles, one of the [on-course officials] said I had about a 30 second [lead] and I tried to keep it the same through miles 7, 8 and 9 and I was afraid to ask somebody [down the stretch] how much of a lead I had because I was afraid they were going to say ‘10 seconds,” Scheid said afterwards.

The women’s winner was Florida’s Kristen Tenaglia, who ran 1:23:37. Abigail Parker of Reno, Nev. was second (1:26:10) and Kristan Dietz, 29, of Madison, N.J. was third.
