Because of poverty, he had to run to school every day not to be beaten by the evil headmaster.
But because of this twist of fate, he developed a love of running. Full of vibrancy and youthfulness, he set himself a goal to qualify for an entry position in the Boston Marathon. The years of training built him into a better and better runner. He found a coach. But then tragedy struck.
He injured his heel. He sought solace in many places including the blogosphere.
No athlete wants to give up, so his coach made him train in the water. This helped him keep his fitness as good as possible given the circumstances.
As time went on the coach had him work on how he leaned into his running, which was a major cause of his heel problems.
Finally, the big day arrived. In a small fishing village just outside of Huntington Beach, his entire life went full circle.
HE QUALIFIED FOR BOSTON WITH 1 MINUTE AND 17 SECONDS TO SPARE! (thanks misszippy1)
