Chilean miner who ran when trapped

Just watching the moving account of Edison Pena ('The Runner') one of the trapped Chilean miners. "Edison ran up to eight kilometres a day in the sweltering humidity of the mine. In a bid to improve his stamina, he took to towing a wooden crate behind him."

since he got out of the mine he hasn't stopped running...

  • How did he know he ran 8 k's. His Garmin would never have got a signal!!image
  • Lol! I'm sure he'll get pelters for his poor training schedule too.
  • Isn't running when trapped something we can all relate to? Okay much more extreme but we can all imagine what was going on in his head on some level
  • can definately relate to that Hashette. I also hate it now coz I cannot run or play out. Saved his mind it seems.
  • Wolf - I'd guess FF was joking.
