From strangers to friends: How this selfless act near the finish line of a race was bigger than a win
Maggie Duba didn’t know who she was, but all she could see was another competitor on the ground, coughing, moaning, and in need of paramedics. As she was headed toward the finish line, Duba noticed that Storey “didn’t have anything left” and was hunched over on the ground. Beth Storey also found Noreen Duba’s number and called to thank her on Friday, and let her know Sarah Storey was OK. “The help of a stranger at the time who became a friend -- it was an amazing thing,” Beth Storey said. No doubt, the two strangers who didn’t know each other before Friday are looking forward to running future races together as friends.
