I am total impressed with a complete stranger.
I just read about the largest person ever to complete a marathon. That’s right a 400 lb. sumo wrestler just finished a marathon. Was it a record pace? Nope, took him nearly 10 hours. But wow. Good for him!
Just goes to show that it’s never too late to start taking care of yourself. Of course some would say that putting your body through 26.2 miles is anything but taking care of yourself, more like punishing yourself.
So congratulations to Kelly Gneiting!
I can’t wait until I can get back into distance running again. It may be a while before I’m running 26.2 again, but my goal is to at least run a half before 2011 is over.
