Edison Pena Ran 6 Miles A Day, In August 2010, Edison Pena was the 12 Chilean miners to leave the ground in front of an attentive international audience. He and his fellow miners were held throughout the world, and Pena ran the ING Marathon last year in New York to the delight of the spectators, media and all of New York.

It’s been a long year since.

Nicknamed “The Runner” for the newspaper ran 06.03 miles in the last year the mine, Pena struggle with drugs and alcohol has been documented in a recent article in the New York Times.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Pena spoke of their difficulties, but mostly wanted to express his excitement about running his second marathon in New York on Sunday, something I wanted to do as part of their healing process.

“The past year has been very difficult,” he said through a translator. “I had to process everything that happened. I have made many mistakes, but he also continued working to illuminate my path. I’m here though I have fallen to demonstrate that I have raised.”

“I really do not want to go into depth about the challenges they face,” he said, when pressed. “But suffice it to say that I have received help and declared a truce with the problems I had.”

Mary Wittenberg, president and CEO of New York Road corridor, said that when the organization understands that current was again something that was helping Pe?a “which threw open arms to welcome him.”

At day’s end, says Pe?a, who is running that will take away from the demons he has faced. “This great hall is very satisfying and really helps to dispel my problems,” he said. “The feeling wonderful after running is very therapeutic for me.”
