    This is a pretty cool story about one of my former coworkers. He ran the 4x4 for the USA team and broke his fibula midway through the race. It's amazing that he finished the race and helped the US qualify for the finals.

    Knowing him personally, I think his 'cockiness' really helped him through the final meters. He worked too hard to give up then.

    Could you guys run this far if you broke your fibula? Do you think being confident helped him get through it?
