Altruistic Tortoise...and Ultrarunning

Seen over at Mike the Mad Biologist.  This 15 second video depicts an altruistic tortoise:

Hope this video plays OK, since I have absolutely no knowledge of Twitter, the source.  But I know you'll enjoy it if you watch.

The connection to Ultrarunning?  In various races I have personally participated in helping a runner in distress, and myself have been the recipient of such help.  I suspect that this experience is actually the norm for Ultrarunners--we'll always stop and help somebody who needs it, even if it throws us off our planned race.

It's just what you do.
