Never been able to understand the point of hurting your body for a race. I would get it if it saved a life or something. I watched a young girl ruin her kidneys and destroy her own body just to claim the great advantage of crossing a line.

Push it to the limits is my motto.

But, accepting defeat is part of the learning process when it comes to the world of health and fitness, know your limits. Not everyone can be like a Serengeti warrior when it comes to long distance running.

Either way. That guy knew his limit, and pushed it a little further to make it easier for his body, I guess by crawling. He just wanted to finish, for good reason.

Are you in this thread solely to roody poo a heart-warming story?


a reply to: theatreboy

It's a beautiful act. Well done, marine. Clearly, he has love in his heart for his fallen friends. I'm proud of him, and he should feel proud.

Your opinion was crystal clear after your first post, but you had to repeat it confrontationally after each well-wisher. I find that in poor taste.

Well as you get old and you learn, things like using your knees to crawl 4 miles means in your future your Family will be living with someone with ruined knee joints at the very min.
I think there are ways that honor People far better than hurting yourself permanently.

You give enough of a crap to give an opinion, and stick around. I think you feel threatened by this guy.

I don't think he literally crawled four miles on his hands and knees. He probably had stints of getting up and walking, and crawling and near the end just couldn't stand, and crawled the final few hundred meters.

Either way, this guy was going through some mental pain. Perhaps this was his atonement to maybe bring closure to his own demons. His knees might be a little wonky, but his happiness might have been boosted 10,000% in life.

All people who have the fortitude and determination to meet their goal(s) in a difficult endeavor, are special. Very few humans qualify.

Ok cool. But you do realize you're s******* on a guy that has chosen this marathon to grieve and honor his friends. I mean if anything, you should be upset at the media for seeing a man crawling to the finish line, and deciding to interview him. Then again, I'm not sure why this bothers you enough to act like this, other than someone pissed in your breakfast this morning.

Well, actually I might know why.

me not really caring at all and thinking it is not some huge deal is not exactly the same thing as crapping on him

Looks like you are right it helps him somehow.




Herndon said he was drawn to running several years ago when he realized it provided him with the “release” he desperately sought. At the time, Herndon, like many veterans, was struggling to cope with the challenges of transitioning back to normal life after spending four years on active duty in the Marines, during which he was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan
