Man with muscular dystrophy inishes 3rd marathon CHICAGO (AP) — A Venezuelan man with muscular dystrophy was the last runner to cross the inish line of the Chicago Marathon — nearly 17 hours after he started the race. Maickel Melamed, 38, of Caracas inished the 26.2-mile race at 1:30 a.m. Monday in 16 hours and 46 minutes. About 100 people cheered him on as he inished. He received a inisher’s medal. He put forth a positive message of achieving dreams, ofering several inspirational quotes after he completed the race. “When you give it all you feel peace inside,” Melamed said. “If you dream it, make it happen.” Later, he said, “When you cross this inish line, you think to yourself, ‘I can do anything in my life.’ ” One of his supporters, Leda Santo Domingo, called Melamed a survivor and champion. “We’re following him because we believe that this is almost an impossible thing to do,” she said. “He’s doing it because his mind is so strong, and he has in the heart a dream.” Melamed started running marathons two years ago, and Chicago was his third. He has competed in marathons in Berlin and New York City and plans to tackle the upcoming Tokyo and Boston races. The winner of the Chicago Marathon was Kenyan Dennis Kimetto, who inished the course in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 45 seconds.
