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.”
