“The pain I was going through was nothing compared to the pain they went through.” ❤️🥺 US marine Micah Herndon was determined to finish the Boston marathon, even if it meant crawling to the finish line. He was running to honour three of his comrades who were killed in Afghanistan, but at the 22nd mile his legs locked up. He said when he felt like giving up, he would just repeat their names and keep on crawling. He still managed to finish in 3 hours and 38 minutes. #determination #running #USmarines #Boston #Bostonmarathon #marathonrunning #tribute #bbcnews
