MARATHON MAN IN SEARCH OF DONEGAL RUNNER WHO HELPED HIM CROSS LINE

first_imgRunner Martin Murphy is searching for a Donegal man who helped him cross the finish line of the Dublin City Marathon to say “thank you”!The Westmeath man who runs for St Brigid’s AC in Castlepollard, was running his fourth Dublin marathon, when he hit the ‘wall’ at mile 20.He struggled on after that, but it was the helping hand of a stranger, Padraic Lenehan, that got him across the finish line. Martin revealed “Everything was going well. I was enjoying the race and the atmosphere on the day, but I was aiming for a time and I started off too fast. When I reached the 20-mile mark I hit the wall and the wheels came off the wagon,” Martin said.“I was struggling really badly. I had to walk from 20 miles because once you hit the wall you don’t come back from it. With 200 metres to go, everything locked up.“I could see the finish line but my legs and arms wouldn’t move and next thing, out of nowhere someone came along, put out his arm, and helped me across the finish line.“It was absolutely amazing. He was like an angel on the day. Only for him, I was out of it. I don’t know him and I didn’t have the chance to say thank you, so if anyone out there knows how I can get in touch with him I’d greatly appreciate it.”  MARATHON MAN IN SEARCH OF DONEGAL RUNNER WHO HELPED HIM CROSS LINE was last modified: November 7th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMarathonPauric Lenihanrunnerlast_img read more
