My Run, the movie ONE NIGHT ONLY!...
Are any of y'all going to see this Thursday night? It is one of those one night only movies and I was lucky enough to win two tickets through a blog giveaway on 26.2 Quest . I can't wait to plant myself in the movie theatre to see it!
The movie is the story of Terry Hitchcock, who, after losing his wife to breast cancer and struggling to raise three young children on his own, set out to accomplish the impossible. He wanted to run 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to bring attention to the incredibly difficult lives of single-parent families. He ran from St. Paul, MN to Atlanta, GA. He ran every day despite the weather despite the pain. He just kept running until he broke the finish line tape in Atlanta.
It is a story of gut wrenching endurance and faith that you can accomplish those things which seem impossible. If the movie is playing in your area and you aren't doing anything around 7:00 on Thursday night, it sounds like a "must see" to me. You might want to bring tissues....
"I firmly believe human beings can accomplish anything they put their minds to that nothing is impossible."
- Terry Hitchcock
