SALT LAKE CITY — A Texas high school student came to the rescue of an exhausted runner last weekend at the BMW Dallas Marathon.
Seventeen-year-old Ariana Luterman ran as a pacer at the marathon. Luterman said in an interview with the Dallas Morning News' SportsDay that she joined Chandler Self for the last two and a half miles of the race. Then a nightmare came to life.
"I'm not really sure what happened," Self told SportsDay. "My legs started turning to Jell-O at mile 24. ... Then at mile 25.5, they turned to Jell-O so much that every step I took, they were giving out from under me."
With the finish line in sight, Luterman helped Self to her feet at every stumble. Self finished first in Sunday's race with a time of 2 hours, 53 minutes and 57 seconds.
