Storyline

After tragically losing his wife to breast cancer and struggling to raise three young children on his own, real life super hero and modern day Forrest Gump, Terry Hitchcock seized on an idea. He wanted to accomplish the impossible: run 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to bring attention to the incredibly difficult lives of single-parent families. He ran in spite of freezing rain and unbearable heat, in spite of chest pains and bone fractures that wracked his 57-year-old body. He just kept running - each day, every day - strengthening an unbreakable bond between father and son--- not stopping until he broke the finish line tape in Atlanta. MY RUN is more than a film about a guy running multiple marathons; it's a film about the daily marathons we all run in life. Written by Producer

Authentic, moving documentary
15 December 2009 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary at the Mammoth Film Festival and loved it! It was moving, inspirational, and authentic. The story of Terry and his family is compelling from the very first frame; from the story of how he and his wife met, to heartbreak, to triumph. And just watching Terry complete a marathon each day was enough to make my knees hurt. As a (former) long distance runner myself, I was truly awed by Terry's will and devotion. In a way, he's a real life Forrest Gump. The filmmakers utilize video footage from his marathon-ing days as well as present day interviews. I believe the film is just beginning it's festival run, so try and catch it if it plays in your city!
