I headed down to Cochrane to run Martin Parnell's last 10km of his 250th marathon this year. He is raising money for Right to Play, a children's charity, and I thought it would be cool to participate in his last run.
|This is me and Marathon Man himself!|
He is inspirational, to say the least, and I was so grateful to get the chance to run with him. I asked him if he was looking forward to tomorrow, and he said "more than anyone can know. I can't wait to do anything but run!"
|He had 400m left to run before the final 2 km, so he told us all to wait while he ran up this parking lot and across a bridge and back!|
The next time I feel like I can't keep going during a race, I'll be able to think about this experience and I'm sure I'll find the strength to continue!
