250 Marathons in 2010

No, that's not my goal! That's Martin Parnell's goal - Marathon Quest 250. He hopes to run 250 marathons in 2010 to raise $250,000 for Right to Play. He'll run 5 marathons a week, taking Fridays and Saturdays off to rest. He'll complete most of his 26.2 milers in Alberta, but plans to run official marathons like Boston, too.

  5. Tina, I'm so glad you aren't going for 250 marathons...that was scary when I read your title! Sounds like a great quest though. Hope your tapering is going well!
