Hermin Garic heads to Miami for marathon

By WKTV News

Local wheelchair racer Hermin Garic is headed to Miami to compete in his second marathon.

Garic raced in the NYC Marathon in November.

He says he is looking to increase his national exposure.

Garic moved to the U.S. in 2000. But while he was in Bosnia he was involved in an accident that claimed the use of his legs. He was four then.

Garic's goal is to someday win the Boilermaker.

But first, he has to go 26.2 miles on Sunday in Miami.
