LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley has run the 118th Boston Marathon in just under four hours and 35 minutes.

Calley ran Monday’s race as part of the One Fund Boston team, which raises money for victims and families of last year’s deadly bombing. The 37-year-old Calley’s pace was 11 minutes, 13 seconds per mile, according to the marathon’s website.

One Fund Boston has raised more than $70 million since being created after the bombing. Before starting the race, Calley tweeted that his team raised more than $750,000.

The lieutenant governor individually raised $15,000.

He posted a photo of himself following his finish on his Twitter account.
