The Secret Marathon

Imagine having stones thrown at you while you are running. Imagine having to run in circles in private to save yourself from danger.

Martin Parnell and I sat down for a chat on Your Life, Unlimited Radio on CJOB and talk about inspiration.  The author of Marathon Quest, the man ran 250 marathons with the aim to raise $250, 000 for the Right to Play charity, an organization that reaches out to disadvantaged children around the world.

His newest quest is the slowest (and best!) marathon he has ever run – with women in Afghanistan.  Martin shares his story about The Secret Marathon – on Your Life, Unlimited radio o CJOB – Take it in and watch the trailer for his upcoming documentary chronicling their journey!
