Marathoner can’t run, so he hugs instead

One last video from this week’s Boston Marathon.

He’s Ken E. Nwadike Jr. of Los Angeles, who says he failed to qualify for the marathon by 23 seconds. He’s a race event coordinator who raises money for charities. He says he started running while homeless as a high school student.

“Friends were never able to hang out with me after school,” he says. “I started to become a great athlete through using sports to get away. At a time when I’m older, I needed a new way to vent and release my frustration.”
