Blind girl inspires with passion for running

A little girl in California is inspiring her classmates with her new passion for running.

Heaven Vallejos is blind -- but that hasn't stopped her from becoming one of the best cross country runners in the fourth grade at her school.  Her special education instructor helps guide her as she dashes around the track.
The two have formed a special trust. Vallejos says getting started was a challenge -- but now she has big plans.

"It was hard at the beginning when I started cross country, but it's getting easier." "I want to be in a triathlon."

 "A triathlon? So you want to run, swim and bike?"

"Or run, swim and do something else. I don't know."

Vallejos' dad says he can see how happy his daughter is taking part in the sport.
