I was honored as a Global Hero last year. (See site) It is a wonderful experience. Please let me know if you have any questions.
What is a Global Hero? Good question.
The answer in this case is a runner who's live was extended and/or improve with the help of a medical device and has returned to running.
Times and performances are not important nor a factor. Courage and spirit do count.
