10 Years Later, Jason McElwain Inspires Through Running

Remember Jason McElwain? Ten years ago, the teenager living with high-functioning autism inspired the world by checking into a high school basketball game and scoring 20 points in the span of four minutes, making him a national celebrity.

ESPN caught up with McElwain a decade later in this video, which you can see below. Among his accomplishments? He’s a 5-time marathoner who’s run the Boston Marathon twice, including a 2:57 finish in 2014.
