Meet the New Movie Marathon Man
Man ran 75 marathons in 75 days to call attention to the challenges of single parenting
When Terry Hitchcock lost his wife to breast cancer, he was suddenly faced with the incredible difficulties of single parenting. At the age of 57, the modern-day Forrest Gump decided to make his life incredibly harder -- by running 75 marathons on 75 consecutive days, covering the distance between St. Paul, MN, and Atlanta, about 2,000 miles. All in the name of calling attention to the challenges of single parenting.
Hitchcock, whose own faith was challenged when his wife died, and son Christopher chronicled the journey, now coming to theaters as My Run, narrated by Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton. The film will show one night only, March 31, in about 500 theaters nationwide. Click here to see if it's playing near you, and check out the trailer below:
