    Cyclist helps half-marathon competitor

    Yay for the good samaritan cyclist! The Houston marathon was run on Sunday. This athlete suffered a flat tire a few miles in, and a cyclist stopped to help him fix it.

    There's a good picture, and the story of the guy in the wheelchair is nothing short of incredible.

    Always nice to hear of people overcoming obstacles.

    Makes me reflect on my own good fortune when I start thinking I have it bad.

    Props to that cyclist for giving the rest of us a boost in rep.
