HAVE you ever run a marathon? Most probably you have not since you are still a little kid and a marathon is a race that is 42.195 kilometres long and often takes about five hours to complete!

A teen in Pennsylvania (賓夕法尼亞州), the US, did not intend to run such a long distance, so he chose the half marathon to run. But he missed a turn while running.

Eventually, he finished the whole marathon! It took him a bit less than five and a half hours.

You can imagine how worried his parents were while they were waiting at the finish line. They even called the police! Luckily, everything turned out nice and happy.
