A different kind of Marathon: So you think you are tough ? This guy was tough. A marathon a day for over 120 days…..on one leg, with cancer. Today, a Tribute to Terry Fox.
Half of The Gait Guys grew up in Canada. We were barely a teenager when Terry began his plight. His mission, 26 miles a day, every day, until he had crossed the expanse of Canada. He made it an amazing 120+ days in a row, 3339 miles, before his cancer returned. The whole country stood cheering watching him do something no mortal man would attempt, let along with one leg, and cancer. Today we pay a tribute to this rockstar……. his candle went out long before it should have. So, still think you are a tough runner ? This kind of stuff amazes us. RIP Terry. You did more in 22 years of life than most of us will do in a lifetime. We have neither not forgotten you nor what you stood for, and we never will. Shawn & Ivo
