A Nepalese runner has achieved a remarkable feat by running a marathon on his hands and setting a new world record. The runner, who goes by the name of Handstand Man, completed the 42.195-kilometer (26.219-mile) course in 3 hours, 45 minutes, and 12 seconds, beating the previous record by more than an hour.
Handstand Man said he was inspired by his childhood hero, Spider-Man, and wanted to challenge himself and show the world what he can do. He said he trained for six months, practicing handstands every day and strengthening his arms, shoulders, and core. He also said he had to overcome many difficulties, such as blisters, cramps, and traffic.
“I’m very happy and proud of myself for achieving this goal. It was not easy, but I never gave up. I wanted to prove that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and work hard. I also wanted to inspire other people to follow their dreams and try new things,” he said.
Handstand Man said he plans to celebrate his victory by eating his favorite food, momos (Nepalese dumplings), and resting his hands for a while. He also said he has more goals in mind, such as running a marathon on one hand, running a marathon upside down, and running a marathon on the moon.
“I love running on my hands. It makes me feel free and alive. I don’t care what others think or say. I just do what I love and enjoy myself. I hope to run more marathons in the future and break more records. Maybe one day I will run on my hands around the world,” he said.
