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

Great Documentary
24 October 2009 | by BrendanbesethSee all my reviews

I saw this documentary at the Austin Film Festival and really enjoyed it. It will change the way you live. It's the story of Terry Hitchcock, who lost his wife to cancer then raised his kids by himself. After the kids were grown he decided to run seventy-five marathons in a row to raise awareness for single-parent households. Once he decides to run the marathons, the story really takes off. You see how hard it was for him. He was already in his late fifties when he decided to do it, and he had a bad heart. The fact that he never gave up, no matter what was put before him, is what makes the documentary so great. It shows you that if you really put your mind to something and believe in yourself, you really can do amazing things.
