My Best Race: 50 Runners And The Finish Line They'll Never Forget

The parents will be blindfolded; the teens will be their guides. But my experience training to become a blind runner and my relationship with my blind sister have taught me that some of the most beautiful things in this world do not have to be seen to be felt. A cold rain is falling from a black sky. The slick roads are plastered with wet leaves that burned with the fiery crimson, yellow and orange of a North Carolina autumn for just a short while before an angry wind whisked them from their branches.

I uttered those words in the middle of a journey around an indoor track with no shortage of directional signs. Instead, I picked up my boxing gloves and threw myself back into the ring.

I kept writing, and I kept fighting. I thought Batten disease was killing me, but I was wrong. From the moment I decided to run the race blind, I dreamed of wrapping Taylor in a hug at the finish line. But my sister was in no condition to join us on the morning of the event.

But hanging my medal around her neck at my house hours later and seeing her face light up was just as special. And yet, I can recognize the beauty in her smile, the courage in her laugh and the warmth in her hug. I can channel that energy into saving lives. My anger is always conquered by my love. And my love for Taylor is a bright beacon, lighting my way. Thanks for the inspiration, Julie and Chris!

But, not being able to see it, she settled for the blurry finish area. This year-old patriot beat the Russians in the USA vs. USSR 10, Meters race. Nobody would have guessed it possible for Gerry Lindgren to win this race just a few years earlier. Lindgren grew up as a wimpy and unlikely athlete.

Doggedly determined, he regularly did three-a-day workouts. A long run in the morning, m repeats before lunch, and another long run in the evening. His audacious training approach paid off when he was chosen to represent the United States in the 10K event at the formidable USA vs. He had never run that distance before, so his strategy was to simply hang on as long as he could and run with the leaders until mile four.
