My Run -- 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.
My Run -- Indiewood Pictures in Association with Destiny Pictures presents the award-winning MY RUN, the inspirational documentary of Terry Hitchcock, narrated by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton. 

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. 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.

My Run, 21 January 2010
Author: steve-641-244786 from United States

This is a very inspirational film that depicts the trials and tribulations of bringing up kids as a single parent. It's difficult enough with two let alone one, one that has been affected by a loving wife who has died from breast cancer at an early age. His interaction with his son who follows him throughout the country is encouraging. Terry's son stayed the course and followed his father from Minneapolis to Atlanta. It is amazing that you were able to continue your quest with so many distractions and maladies. Not only was your trip encouraging to many in your same situation but miraculous at your age.Terry, thank you for your selfish dedication to bring this important situation out into the open.
