The first “Run to Remember”

Imagine if you had a traumatic brain injury for a moment.

Okay, I know this isn’t usual lightheartedness, but bear with me for a second.

Imagine if you had a traumatic brain injury. What would you do?

I know I would not take on the feat of running from one side of Canada to the other in order to raise awareness for Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors, that is for sure.

But, David McGuire, that is what he did and called it a “Run to Remember.” And this is AFTER David’s family was told that he may never walk or talk again. One year after his injury, he ran his first marathon. And soon thereafter pulled off the amazing feat of running a marathon a day across Canada, departing from St. John’s Newfoundland and completed his amazing feat 8 1/2 months later in Victoria.

So why am I telling you this? Just wait:

David running along the road.

And who does he see up ahead?

  2. I really like how this blog has sort of morphed. You started it as a bit of a goof on people running in jeans, but you really bring us a lot of inspiring stories!!! 🙂 (I enjoy both!)
