In his debut marathon, he ran 2:14:32 at the 2010 P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Marathon. In January 2009Eggleston will enter the Olympic year having come off his fastest marathon ever when he ran the Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, Minn. (2:13:12). In January 2009 he ran 1:03:58 for the half-marathon, which easily eclipsed the the qualifying standard for the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials. Eggleston's 2nd place, 2:14:09 finish at the 2010 USA Marathon Championship earned him a spot on the 2011 World Championship Marathon Team. He will enter the World Championships having come off his fastest marathon yet, having run 2:13:12 in Duluth, Minn. at the 35th Grandma's Marathon.
