GLENN'S BIG RUN
'I was fortunate enough to hear Nick Lee give a presentation about his wife, Jodi, and her battle with bowel cancer and the legacy Nick has created. After hearing his story and learning about bowel cancer prevention, I thought this was a great cause and one I'd like to support in my upcoming running challenge.
The object is to run 4 miles every 4 hours over 48 hours (4x4x48). Which equates to 6.44km, 12 times over a 48 hour period completing a total of 77.28km. Just shy of two marathons.
My motivation to take up this challenge, came from listening to two inspirational audio books written by Davis Goggins, 'Can' Hurt Me' and 'Never Finished'. David started this challenge three years ago, and today, people from all over the world take part in this event every March. It does not cost anything to enter, and the idea is to push yourself, whilst raising money for a worthy charity.
David's never give up attitude has inspired me to complete this challenge and after discussing the challenge with my family, my 21-year-old daughter has also decided to participate.
This year we will be starting on the 3rd of March at 4.00AM and finishing on the 4th at midnight.'
