Running Across The USA – LA to Boston, 2015

5400kms, 114 days, and 14 states! LA to BOSTON for the 100 Mile Club. I wrote a letter to Michelle Obama and asked her to run with me at the white house. Blues highway in Mississippi. Crazy foot pain that reduced me to a slow walk for a month. Slept in the gutter under a piece of Plasticā€¦heat, freezing rain, and snow.

The run started in Huntington Beach, CA on January 16, 2015 I started by running a marathon everyday for the first 3 weeks then upped the mileage to a average of 34 miles a day all the way to Washington DC then New York and finished in Boston on May 9th 2015.

Myself and my great friend Patrick Sweeney ran this run together with a amazing crew of 2, Shacky and Vanessa followed us in their RV. Amazing support.
