Every year the New York Marathon attracts thousands of runners hoping to complete one of the world's greatest road races. This year, some of them might want to look to Richard Whitehead for inspiration.
Born with no legs below his knees, Whitehead will run the 26 mile course that winds its way through the city's five suburbs. Using specially-cushioned running legs, Whitehead first completed the course two years ago in 5 hours and 18 minutes without ever having run a race before.

This year Whitehead, 30, is raising the expectations, hoping to knock an hour off of his race time from two years ago.
