If you've ever run a half marathon, you know how much training, willpower, and effort goes into preparing for one. You also can relate to how heartbreaking it would be if you made it through most of the race, but then weren't able to finish.
At the fourth annual Philadelphia Love Run Half Marathon, just before reaching the 20 km mark, one woman became so exhausted, that she just about collapses. But two men came along, saw her struggling, pulled her up, and wrapped their arms around her to help her keep going. Then in the ultimate act of compassion, another man scooped her up Prince-Charming-style, and carried her just inches away from the finish line, and placed her down so she could cross it on her own.
Runners really are a unique kind of people, and even though this race was a competition, these three men proved that kindness is way more important than beating your PR.
