Well he did it! Former trapped Chilean miner Edison Pena completed the ING NYC Marathon in just under 5 hours. Click here for the full story. For those of you not familar with this story, Edison Pena ran 3-6 miles a day while trapped 700m underground in a collapsed mine. To put this into greater perspective, the standard marathon training plan is 84 to 112 days and Mr. Pena was trapped for 69 days.
Congratulations to Edison Pena as well as the other 43,000 or so runners who took part in yesterday’s race. It’s truly magical experience and by far, my favorite marathon!
Now go run!
