Running Streaks, The Hoyts, And The Boston Marathon

4/12/13 Today Debbie Fetterman, the wonderful columnist for the Dallas Morning, wrote about a Dallas man who is running his 13th straight Boston Marathon on Monday and has run every day for 14 years. That’s impressive, to say the least.

Ron McCallum is raising money for Dick and Rick Hoyt, who are participating in their 31st Boston Marathon. Dick, age 72, has pushed his son Rick in a wheelchair in over 1,000 races, including 32 times at Boston.Their competitive drive, advocacy, and fundraising efforts for the disadvantaged are beyond compare.
4/16/13 Edited with the message at the top. I’m devastated by what happened at my sport’s greatest day.
