It is really is amazing that some people on here just can't give the kid his proper due. Just because you're a Letsrun.com elitist having run your 15 minute 5K doesn't give you the right to judge this kid's results. Have a little class please. It only shows your lack thereof. Don't be the bully back in high school that made fun of the special ed kids.
As the parent of a young autistic child, I can only hope that my son can aspire to have an athletic achievement such as this. How many people in the US have run a 3:01 marathon or better? I'd be curious to know what that number is or what the percentage of all marathoners is that run 3:01 or better.
For those of you that don't have an autistic child, you have NO idea what parents go through on a daily basis. It is a grind every single day! There are different severities of autism on the autism spectrum and if I remember correctly, I believe that Jason has Asperberger's which is more of a social disfunction. Let the kid feel good about himself.
