Carson Daly: Chilean Miner Wants to Run the NYC Marathon

nyc marathon Carson Daly: Chilean Miner Wants to Run the NYC Marathon

Edison Pena, one of the 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for nearly 70 days, is running in the New York City Marathon this Sunday.  So does Carson Daly think the miner can pull out a win? Take a listen after the jump!

Pena worked out frequently while stuck underground.  He jogged 6 miles every day in the tunnels while listening to [lastfm]Elvis Presley[/lastfm] on his iPod

Originally, organizers thought Pena would only ride in the lead vehicle, but he’s determined to finish the 26.2-mile course.

Personally, I’m way impressed.  Edison, if you’re reading this out there somewhere, here’s a little music to pump you up!
