A Nurse’s Marathon World Record Didn’t Count – And The Insane Reason Prompted A Public Outcry

Some sports, while fun to participate in, can push you to your physical and mental limits. And marathons are among the hardest events in that regard – as competitors are required to run great distances before they reach the finishing lines. Despite the hardships, though, many men and women take on these endurance tests each and every year. A case in point is Jessica Anderson, who in 2019 looked to challenge herself in a very famous marathon race in a particularly strange way.

Yes, Anderson decided to compete in the 2019 London Marathon – an annual race held in England’s capital city. This contest, following its inception in the early 1980s, has become one of the most popular in the sporting calendar. And each year, tens of thousands of people sign up for the lengthy course.
