A Long Beach firefighter will be running 34.3 miles to ground zero for the 21st anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
The number 343 is the number of firefighters who died trying to save others during the attacks.
"As I get to 28, 29, 30 miles - yeah it hurts and that's the point - I'm supposed to suffer because that suffering serves as a reminder of what happened that day," says Etan Blatt.
