  • HERE'S NUMBER ONE.

  • NOW, WE'RE ALL TRYING TO CONTINUE LIVING LIFE AS NORMALLY

  • AS POSSIBLE UNDER LOCKDOWN.

  • TAKE ALISHA NUSHOMOWITZ, WHO LIVES IN FRANCE.

  • AN AVID MARATHON RUNNER ALISHA HAD BEEN TRAINING FOR

  • THE BARCELONA MARATHON WHEN HIS TOWN WAS PUT ON FULL LOCKDOWN

  • AND THE MARATHON WAS, OF COURSE, POSTPONED.

  • BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP ALISHA.

  • HE DECIDED TO RUN AN ENTIRE MARATHON ANYWAY, ALL 26.2 MILES

  • ON HIS APARTMENT BALCONY.

  • HE SAYS IT TOOK HIM MORE THAN 3,000 TRIPS BACK AND FORTH

  • AND MORE THAN SIX HOURS TO COMPLETE HIS BALCONY

  • MARATHON.

  • ALISHA DEDICATED HIS ACCOMPLISHMENT TO FRONT-LINE

  • MEDICAL WORKERS.

  • EVERYBODY WAS INCREDIBLY HAPPY FOR ALISHA.

  • EXCEPT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE APARTMENT RIGHT BELOW

  • HIM.

  • I LOVE THAT WE FIND A WAY TO KEEP DOING THE THINGS WE LOVE.

  • FOR HIM, IT'S RUNNING MARATHONS.

  • FOR ME, IT'S NOT RUNNING MARATHONS.

  • I LOVE IT.

  • I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

  • BUT I LOVE IT.

  • MOVING ON, AFTER THIS MUCH TIME UNDER LOCKDOWN, I KNOW I CAN'T

  • BE THE ONLY ONE EATING ALL MY MEALS OVER THE SINK.

  • BUT HERE'S SOMEONE WHO'S STILL PUTTING OUT CUPS AND SAUCERS FOR

  • AFTERNOON TEA.

  • MEET KAZUIS OECKSA, A 31-YEAR-OLD PERFORMER FROM

  • I'M SO THANKFUL FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS, AND ALSO THAT THIRD

  • SAUCER FOR STAYING PUT.

  • >> THAT WAS TOUGH.

  • >> James: I MEAN, WHO'S LIKE, "YOU KNOW WHAT

  • TIRED HEALTHCARE WORKERS NEED RIGHT NOW?

  • I KNOW, GO GET THE BLANKET."

  • AND FINALLY, THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE DOING WHAT THEY CAN TO

  • HELP OUT DURING THIS PANDEMIC AND IT'S SO INSPIRING.

  • ONE TAXI DRIVER IN SPAIN HAS BEEN GIVING COVID-19 PATIENTS

  • FREE RIDES TO AND FROM THE HOSPITAL, WHICH IS FANTASTIC.

  • RECENTLY, AFTER HE'D BEEN DOING ROUND TRIPS ALL DAY, HE WAS

  • CALLED TO THE HOSPITAL TO PICK UP A PATIENT AND WAS GREETED BY

  • THIS...

  • ( APPLAUSE ) THERE WAS NO PATIENT.

  • THE HOSPITAL WORKERS WANTED TO GIVE HIM AN OVATION.

  • AND THEN THEY GAVE HIM MONEY TO GO TOWARDS SOME OF THE TRIPS

  • HE'S BEEN MAKING.

  • WHAT AN AMAZING MOMENT.

  • SO BEAUTIFUL.

  • AND SUCH A DESERVED MOMENT OF RECOGNITION.

  • ( APPLAUSE ) SADLY, HE WAS IN THERE SO LONG

  • GETTING ALL THAT APPLAUSE HE ENDED UP GETTING A PARKING

  • TICKET.

  • THIS HAS BEEN "THREE THINGS TO CHEER YOU UP."
