I love this guy! Chilean miner Edison Peña on Letterman

Maybe you’ve already heard, Edison Peña, one of the rescued Chilean miners, is running the New York City Marathon this weekend. He was on Letterman on Thursday night and charmed everybody to pieces.

Edison, who is a lovable and huggable guy- as David Letterman discovered on TV last night- ran about 6 miles underground each day as he was waiting to be rescued. Long story short, after the rescue, the NYC Marathon organizers invited him to the event as a spectator. But he surprised everybody by letting them know he wanted to run it all.

Here are 2 clips from the show last night: the official one from the late show and another one from youtube where Letterman (in a total change of character) gets all mushy and hugs him.

Fuerza Chile! Run Edison Run! Te vamos a estar echando porras el domingo.
