When I woke up this morning I was surprised to hear a story on the radio about a guy in Alberta who is running 250 marathons this year! I was not able to hear the entire radio clip so I had to search on the internet to find out what the full story was .
It turns out that Martin Parnell is running five marathons a week between January 1 and December 31, 2010. Most of his marathons are being run close to home in Cochrane and he has also run Vancouver, Calgary and Boston this year.
In case you are wondering, the reason for his quest is to raise $250,000 for Right to Play. Here is the link to his website where you can follow and support his impressive quest.
