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

An unbelievably inspiring documentary about a 56 year old running 75 marathons in 75 straight days. Watch this! I say A.

"When Sue died I said to God, how come not me? But I think I had a lot to learn, so that's why I'm still here." The inspiring documentary about Terry Hitchcock. A 56 year old who ran to bring awareness to the country about single parent families by running from Minneapolis to Atlanta after losing his wife, having numerous heart problems (ncluding a heart attack a few months before the run), high blood pressure, two fractured ankles and a fractured knee cap. Did I mention that that's the equivalent of running 75 marathons in 75 straight days...the record before this was 3. Told with present day interviews and footage of the run this is one of the most inspiring, uplifting and outstanding documentaries I have ever seen. If you watch this and you are not moved by the spirit of this man you have no soul. Overall, an absolute must see. I give it an A.

Would I watch again? - I know a few people I would show this to for them to see, I would watch again with them to talk about it.
