Doug Flutie hasn't been on an NFL team since 2005, but he appears to be in pretty good shape.

The 51-year-old prepared for the 2014 Boston Marathon over the weekend, and when Monday arrived, he was ready:

Flutie finished the marathon with a time of 5:23:54, according to the Boston Athletic Association. Not only did the former quarterback run, but Boston.com's Matt Juul reported that Flutie's team of runners raised $176,463 for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism.
