I found this post courtesy of RunningShield this morning and I was curious if he really was part of the race. Playing and pausing the YouTube video mentioned by RunningShield indicated that he had a bib number, meaning that this guy was really part of the race! Yup, Jesus ain't no bandit! :>
Looking at his 42k race performance (YES, he ran the whole distance carrying that cross AND barefoot!), I can't believe how respectably fast this guy was as he finished in 5 hours 13 minutes! Man, his time was faster than my PR!
