Man With Muscular Dystrophy Finishes Boston Marathon After Nearly Full Day – What’s Your Excuse?
Me? Oh, I'm lazy. But what's YOUR excuse? A Venezuelan man just completed the 26.2 mile Boston Marathon course in a hair under 21 hours. What's YOUR excuse?
I've run a half-dozen or so half-marathons (in my thinner days), but even 115 lbs lighter than I am now I couldn't have fathomed running double what I'd just run. Throw in muscular dystrophy and 21 straight hours of moving slowly toward the finish line had this man dead-last, but front-and-center.
