Marine Micah Herndon, finished the Boston Marathon crawling across the finish line to honor the fallen.

According to My Stateline Mr. Herdon who serves in  Afghanistan, lost two people close to him that were killed by a bomb while traveling. To honor them

“I run in honor of them, they are not here anymore. I am here, and I am able. I am lucky to still have all my limbs. I can still be active. I find fuel in the simple idea that I can run. Some cannot...If I get a heat cramp while running or my feet hurt or I am getting exhausted, I just keep saying their names out loud to myself. They went through much worse, so I run for them and their families.”  - Marine Micah Herndon
