Inspirational Runner

Today is the Boston Marathon. In honor of that, I wanted to share an inspirational moment to me. While waiting for my cousin-in-law to finish the St. Jude’s Marathon in Memphis TN, around the corner came Jacob Wells guiding his friend Dave Wilkinson, a blind runner, to the finish line. Running over 146 marathons, and many other races, Jacob was well known within the Arkansas running community. He was always there to inspire and help. I found out that he passed away after collapsing during a marathon last fall. By sharing his story, I hope it can live on and help motivate others.St. Judes Marathon
