Marine Vet Finishes Race On Hands And Knees In Honor Of Friends Who Didn’t Make It Back Home From Overseas!

A Marine veteran, Micah Herndon, had the heart and mind of a champion and the determination of a warrior as he crossed the Boston Marathon on his hands and knees a few weeks ago. He crawled without help, using the memory of his three friends that died in Afghanistan.  

The Marine veteran from Ohio said he was finishing this marathon, even if he had to crawl and that’s just what he did.

“I’m doing this on my own,” Herndon told WBZ.

His legs locked out near mile 22 forcing the Afghanistan veteran to get on his hands and knees. He wasn’t giving up, drawing inspiration from three fellow comrades who didn’t survive a bombing attack overseas.

“I say their last names out loud while I’m listening to my music,” Herndon explains. “I just repeat: ‘Ballard, Hamer, Juarez. Ballard, Hamer, Juarez.’” [CBS Boston]
