A Salisbury high school senior broke a national record in April, and after that impressive feat, there’s still much to come for the young marathoner.

Timothy Synowiec, 18, fell in the love with the sport of running just two years ago. He gets out the door every day to pound the pavement — no matter the snow on the ground or the summer heat.

“It’s become a lifestyle, for sure. It’s just like waking up, eating, brushing your teeth. It’s kind of like waking up, you run,” Synowiec said.

Most recently, he ran the Salisbury marathon, during which he broke a national record.

“I ran 2:22 for the marathon, and it was the all-time national high school record,” Synowiec said.

He broke the 49-year record for the fastest marathon run by a high-schooler.

“Putting in the work, having the dedication even at that young an age, it’s absolutely incredible,” said RunSBY Events race director, Jason Chance.

Synowiec said the accomplishment results from consistency and cross-training, adding that he gets his work ethic from his mother, his passion for the sport from his father and has a running partner in his sister.

Asked what’s next for the record-breaker, Synowiec said: “I definitely want to be able to keep running longer distances for sure, but at the same time I want to dial in for track season and do well at states.”
