NHL legend Zdeno Chára just added another accomplishment to his resume … the former Bruins star completed the famed Boston Marathon in just over 3 1/2 hours!!
Zdeno finished the course — 26.2 miles long — on Monday in the 127th installment of the event, with a time of 03:38:23 … good for an 8:20 min/mile pace.
FYI, the Boston Marathon features 30,000 athletes from more than 100 countries.
Chára — who spent 24 years in the NHL — got off to a good start … running his first 3 miles in under 26 mins (25:32), and seemed to maintain that momentum the whole way through.
Check out the video … Chára — a 7x All Star and 2011 Stanley Cup winner with the Bruins — crossed the finish line with his arms raised in the air and a smile on his face.

The 46-year-old — who stands 6 feet 9 inches tall and weighs around 250 pounds — looked relieved after he completed the nearly four-hour journey with his fellow runners.
The Boston Marathon is a huge deal … and regularly brings out many celebrities and athletes! Doug Flutie, Brock Holt and Ryan Dempster ran this year.
Congrats to everyone who ran!!
