Canada`s Cassidy Wins The Boston Wheelchair Marathon

5 years ago

To be able to even complete a marathon would be my dream one day let alone win one. In the case of Canada`s Josh Cassidy it wasn`t just a dream, it was a reality. Cassidy a native of Oakville, Ontario finished the Boston Wheelchair Marathon in one hour 18 minutes 25 seconds. This beat the world record previously held by Ernst Van Dyk of South Africa only by 2 seconds. Despite the hot weather (27C) and wearing a long sleeve shirt he trained, he was still able to to finish first. I can say for one that I would not be doing a marathon in a long sleeve shirt or long pants, but he said "I wanted to stick with what was familiar and not worry about the heat." I guess it`s his lucky shirt lol.

Do you ever dream of being able to run a marathon?
Do you think you`d get in good enough shape to qualify for the Boston Marathon?
Or is running not your thing?
