Courage in the Face of Defeat

I just came across an incredible marathon story & video that I had to pass on. It's about Kayoko Fukushi, the fastest Japanese half marathoner in history, making her marathon debut last weekend. She made some costly newbie mistakes that led to a disastrous finish (fell 3 times during her final lap). Check it out:

The full article talks about what happened. Not quite as tragic as Julie Moss' crawl to the Ironman finish back in 1982 but inspiring nevertheless.

Thanks to Nancy for posting this on her blog.
