Tormented by blisters and fractures, Indian ultra marathon runner Samir Singh got to just 36 kilometers of completing a 10,000km in 100 days challenge when pain and exhaustion beat him. India’s Forrest Gump survived nine months pacing the streets of Mumbai on donated clothes and equipment. At the end, the 44-year-old running coach weighed just 40 kilogrammes (88 pounds).
