Marathon Man

8.23 miles around 3pm, temperature in the low 50s.  It was mostly overcast.  I ran solo this time and it felt good and easy.

A man in Beaumont, Texas with brain cancer not only ran a marathon, but won it in 3:07.  Mr. Iram Leon also pushed his six year old daughter in a jogger stroller the whole 26.2 miles.   I love his quote to the Beaumont Enterprise, "This [cancer]  is supposed to eat away at my memory in the end, but I hope this memory is one of the last things to go and one [my daughter] never loses."  Pretty amazing.
