The First Two Dwarves to Run the Boston Marathon Finally Got to Finish

47-year-old John Young and 27-year-old Juli Windsor from Boston both tried to make history on April 15th, but it took two weeks longer than they expected.

John and Juli are both dwarves and they trained for months to become the first two dwarves to finish the Boston Marathon.

They almost made it…they ran 25.7 miles on April 15th, which means they were only half a mile from the finish line when the bombs went off, and the rest of the race was cancelled.  They were led to safety by police.

On Tuesday, with a much smaller crowd watching, John and Juli picked up where they left off…finished the race…and got their finishers medals.  John said, quote, “My mother always told me, you finish what you start.”
