an amazing story

This is a pretty amazing story to me. It's about 6 Maasai Warriors running the London Marathon next weekend with shoes made of used tire tread while carrying spears and shields, all without once stopping for water. They are doing it to raise money so a source of water can be found for their village. My favorite qoute was "Back at home we sometimes run for 5 or 6 days, day and night," Isaya, a young warrior clothed in a red robe and adorned with traditional beaded jewelry, told Reuters in an interview. "Twenty-six miles not far." Amazing!
