    This guy was running a few towns away from me yesterday, I wish I could have joined him for a few miles!

     

    He's also on facebook.

      ...My plan is to cover 50 miles a day...(from the article).

       

      Nice and it is for charities so good on him. Also he is 56.

      Slow and steady never wins anything.

        Excellent! I'm awed by his efforts and the support he's giving to charities!

         

        Keeping in mind that the man runs in 2 days what I run in a month!

        Brrr


        Uffda

          Thanks for sharing. That was a good read. I'm inspired by people who take their free time to do stuff like this for charity. All of them are good causes.

            That is Gary Allen! He is the founder and director of the Mount Desert Island Marathon.  He is an awesome guy.  I met him last May during Reach the Beach.  He is a machine.

              Oh, very cool!  Someone here on RA in the Maine user group also posted about him- he is a friend of his and ran with him one of the days.  His name is Blaine and he's in the video.  Small world.  : )
