Richerd Whitehead

I was camped out near the top of heartbreak hill when another runner started to point and get the crowd cheering. Richerd Whitehead was running without legs and stopped for a moment looking like he was in agony. The crowd cheered louder and he ran on.

I almost cried when I saw him at mile 4. Wonderful captures and story.
