Inspiring Runner: Terry Hitchcock in MY RUN

I am always moved to tears by everyday people overcoming hardships and doing extraordinary things.  I stumbled upon this trailer for the movie, MY RUN, today.  In this inspirational documentary, Terry Hitchcock shares the power of the human spirit and proves that nothing is impossible.

After losing his wife to breast cancer and having to raise 3 kids alone, Terry's incredible 2,000+ mile journey took him from St. Paul, MN to Atlanta, GA, running 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to bring awareness to the struggles many single-parent families face daily.  Terry had very little running experience prior to his journey, running only 2-3 miles everyday for 17 months.  His story is another testament to how far one can go if you put your heart and soul into it.  So inspiring and encouraging!

There is no word yet about screenings for this movie.  I hope there is one near me!  You can follow updates about the movie on MY RUN's Facebook page.
