More than 35,000 runners braved the smog and treacherous e-bike traffic to participate in the Shanghai International Marathon on Sunday. The epic race included costumed assholes, gleeful Frenchmen, and a surprising absence of face-masks, as this CCTV piece carefully shows.
A woman named Liao Chi ran 5km of the race despite having, well, no legs. A former dance teacher, Liao Chi lost her legs in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, but nothing could hamper her spirits as she ran with a huge smile. Respect.
