(WGHP-TV) - A woman's viral brain illness means her husband has to retell their basic life story every day. But even though the husband's brain is working for two, it led him to start running. And running. And running.

Bob Buckley brings us the story of Scott and Sharon Callahan.

Scott and Sharon plan to keep doing triathlons as long as their bodies hold out.
