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

A film that twists your emotions
19 December 2009 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

I saw My RUN at the Austin Film Festival. The film shows the courage and strength of one man on a mission. We follow Terry Hitchcock on his journey -- a journey that starts with tragedy but builds optimism and hope as it unfolds. The film's director, Tim VandeSteeg, has created an engaging film. The quality of the film-making, including the clever use of newspaper clippings, archived video mastering, and flow of the story, is top notch as VandeSteeg blends a mix of traditional film-making arts with contemporary digital technology. The producers have put together a great film and I hope to see it in my local theater or on DVD soon. Billy Bob Thornton is a great narrator. Check it out...
