2012 Scenic City Trail Marathon winner Johnny Clemons by Rock/Creek, via Flickr "People were cheering for me to run and I did. I could not understand what they were telling me. I felt great with a lot of energy but did not sprint in. I missed the record by a mere 5 seconds. My Time 2:43:27!! Knowing some of the things that has happened, in my heart I really have the record. Plus it gives me a goal and something to look forward to for next year."
Harriet Anderson, 74. Competed in Ironman World 18 times. In 2009, got clipped from behind on her bike, fell and broke her clavicle. She taped her arm to her waist, walked the marathon portion and still finished in time. It doesn't get any more badass than that. #livelikeitcounts
