UWUA Local 126 Member Micah Herndon Discusses his Dramatic Boston Marathon Finish on Good Morning America

Micah told the Washington Post, “I wanted to finish on my own because whatever pain that I was feeling at that time, or whenever, is nothing compared to the guys and the families that were lost over there.”
