2013 Philadelphia Marathon
An international duo topped the field at the Philadelphia marathon Sunday, but this is one race that is not about winning.
Saying running has truly saved his life, 26-year-old John Ciccone of West Philadelphia started running seriously about two years ago. He was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder when he was 16.
It’s one of the biggest events of the year in the city – the Philadelphia Marathon gets started early Sunday morning.
The 20th annual race takes place the weekend of November 15-17th on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and areas across the city.
