Marathon boy.

Has anybody seen this???

This looks amazing, even for the non running folk.  Its about a 3 year old boy from a slum in India with an amazing talent for running.  He ran 48 marathons by the time he was 4.  BY THE TIME HE WAS 4!  It looks really interesting, and there was a lot of controversy around letting a 4 year old run marathons obviously.  He was sold multiple times before being discovered by a man who was trying to condition him as an athlete.  The man was eventually killed, and to be honest, india sounds like a rough place.  I wonder what it would be like growing up in a different country under radically different circumstances?

It really makes you think.
