Criminal defense attorney and vapory lounge owner Jim Oliver made quite the statement by vaping throughout his run of the New York Marathon this past Sunday. Oliver ran the full 26.2 miles in about 5 hours, all the while vaping and answering questions about the habit.
Oliver is a partner at the law firm Durflinger Oliver & Associates in in Tacoma, Washington. He also owns and operates the Steampunk Vapory Lounge in the same city.
Oliver is part of a growing community of what you might call clean living or active lifestyle vapers. He’s a member of the Marathon Maniac Running Club and is considering the launch of a running vapers group, club, or what have you.
People like Jim are putting a unique face on the vaping community. He’s now run more than 30 marathons, but the New York Marathon was his first vape run. Response was so positive though that he’s going to make vaping during runs common practice.
Kudos to Jim on a great performance.
