John: Have you heard of the Boston Marathon? It's the first major marathon with a wheelchair division.
Peggy: Yup, I've ever heard of it. But did you just mention a "wheelchair division?"
John: That's right. I really respect those who may be disadvantaged but never look at themselves as disabled.
Peggy: This reminds me of a news story about the blink British adventurer who flew 13,500 miles from London to Sydney in a microlight aircraft on Monday. He finished it in a 59-day journey with a sighted co-pilot.
John: That's amazing! He pulled out all the stops and accomplished something many with perfect vision could not.

解析: pull out all the stops==排除萬難
