400 lb Sumo Wrestler Finishes Los Angeles Marathon

Kelly Gneiting ran 9:48:52 marathon. In just about every other situation, that's slow. However, think of it as three solidly fit, small athletes in one body running 2:56:39s.

I'd be beyond proud of a sub-3.

Yeah, I know he walked most of it. He still burned something like 17,670 calories, or something around almost nine days worth of food for me.
Everything is context.

Anyone else impressed?
