"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”

- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

"My Run" Movie Premiere

If you're looking for something to do on March 31st, here's one idea that was recently sent to me:

"My Run" is the story of Terry Hitchcock, who, after tragically losing his wife to breast cancer and struggling to raise three young children on his own, 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, a theme that’s extremely relevant and important in this day and time.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton, "My Run" will be shown at movie theaters nationwide one night only on March 31, 2011. A portion of the film's profits will be donated to the LIVESTRONG organization to fight cancer. Below are various links for more information.

Seen MY RUN at the Newport Beach Film Festival where it got a thunderous 30 second standing ovation and went on to win Outstanding Documentary.
Powerful, emotional, uplifting film--stays with you after you leave the theater.
