Doctors Said This Teen Would Never Run A Marathon. They Were Wrong.
t was April 1997 when doctors told Austin Prario’s parents that their newborn son might not live to see his first birthday.
Nearly 20 years later, the Rhode Island native has not only proven that prediction wrong ― he’s completed the 121st Boston Marathon.
Prario made his way across the finish line of the race on Monday as cheers erupted from the crowd. His doctors believe he may be the first person with his type of heart condition to complete the famously challenging 26.2-mile race, which he finished in just over 6 hours and 14 minutes.
