Eidson Pena was one of the Chilean miners who was trapped underground. Pena passed the time 69 days underground by running up to 3 miles a day in the mine’s tunnels. An iPod was sent to Pena upon his request uploaded with Elvis music for him to workout to. Now, Pena will run in tomorrow’s New York City Marathon and was invited specially by the race’s organizers.
This will be Pena’s first marathon and he has not change, but that is not stopping him. Last night, Pena appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and performed some of the Elvis songs that he runs to on his iPod. Good luck Pena from one runner to another!
