Pump it

This is Bryon Pumphrey, alias Pump:


I've been following his blog for several months now.  He's been using the Hanson's Marathon training plan and has been killing it, all in the hopes of earning a BQ.  Just a few days ago, though, he got some pain in his leg checked out and was dealt a hard blow when given the diagnosis of tendonitis and severe shin splints.

His marathon, the Indy Monumental Marathon, was today.  After being told he wasn't at risk of doing any further damage, he decided to run anyway and manage the pain as best he could.

Today he ran the marathon in a personal record of 3:03:50.

His dedication and hard work over the past several months have been nothing short of inspirational, and I'll definitely be thinking of him when I need some inspiration in two weeks.

Well done, Bryon.  I hope you're enjoying your well-deserved rest.
