Last night, my wife handed me her iPad and said, “You have to read this. This couple just finished running a marathon every day in 2013.”
I think my first response was something along the lines of “B*** S***!”
But apparently, it’s for real (not that I can prove it one way or the other from here in the Midwest). For more details, check out the article from ABC News. Or check out the couple’s running and fundraising website: RunningRawAroundAustralia.com.
Looks like they set out to circle Australia while promoting a raw, vegan diet and fundraising along the way. All in, they ran 9,776 miles! I can only imagine how many shoes, clothes, and Gatorades they went through along the way.
Our two boys need not worry, however. Becky and I immediately looked at each other and promised that we would never, ever go this crazy and do this!
But then I realized I had already done something less aggressive–but still crazy. In sixth grade and with my mom and 200 others, I biked from Seattle to Atlantic City as part of the inaugural Trans-America Bicycle Trek via the American Lung Association. But that’s a story for another day…
So maybe it’s better to simply say I won’t be doing anything this crazy…again.
