It began with a vision: Running 100 miles in 24 hours with disabled kids.
I had pushed kids with special needs through several marathons all over the country. I had also run the Zion 100 Mile Ultra Marathon three times, finishing once. Could we set up a situation where I could do both...push kids and run 100 miles?
On November 15th, 2014, at 10:30pm, the vision started to become reality. On the track at UNLV's Myron Partridge Stadium I began the first of 296 laps with kids along for every step of the way. By the next afternoon my rider-athletes and I had completed 74 miles on the track and at 4:30pm we stood at the starting line for the Las Vegas Rock N Roll Marathon...with 26.2 miles to go.
A few hours later we crossed the finish line. We had done it! 12 rider-athletes and I had run 100 miles (102 miles if we're being accurate)
