Running a marathon, or even a half-marathon, is a pretty substantial challenge. While many of us make do with climbing the stairs to our apartments or walking to the car or bus stop, there are some who get out and run 21 or 42 kilometers without a break. That takes not only physical fitness, but the mental toughness to keep moving and not to give in to distracting and dispiriting thoughts.

David Sameach knows all about that. The 31-year-old Sameach, who will be running the 21-km. course in the Tel Aviv Samsung Marathon next Friday, has had his own challenges to overcome.
