NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick ran the St. Jude Country Music Half Marathon on Saturday and finished with an official time of 2 hours, 36 minutes and 46 seconds.

Belichick ran with his fiancee, Linda Holliday, and they finished the half marathon together, according to The Tennessean. Joseph Chebet won the half marathon with a time of 1:10:36.

''It was a great run,'' Belichick said. ''I came out to support Linda in her hometown race for her first half marathon.''
