Venezuelan man competing in the Boston Marathon

My husband ran in the Boston marathon this past Monday.  When he was competing, he saw Maickel Melamed running.  Melamed is Venezuelan and has muscular dystrophy.  He completed the Boston marathon in 20 hours.  It was a very cold and rainy day, and the dedication that he showed is astounding!  This story is inspiring and one to share with your students.
