Heart Transplant Recipient Ran Marathon

An AGH (Allegheny General Hospital) Heart Transplant ran the Pittsburgh Marathon last Sunday. I thought about him today and I went back tonight and found his photograph. I took it just before Mile 20.

Absolutely incredible, isn’t it?

Wishing him all the best!

According to the article below from WTAE he had the transplant just 17 months ago
