A (Very) Young Marathoner

In case you haven’t seen this article, you should check it out. A young girl, only 14 years old, is trying to run a marathon on every continent before the age of 15. Why tackle this crazy task you may ask? She is doing it for her father who died of prostate cancer. Winter Vinecki is seeking to match every pink ribbon with a blue ribbon and so far she has raised over $400,000. That’s quite an accomplishment for young girl from rural Michigan.

Winter Vinecki:

Many have told me I’m too young to run these distances, to wait until I’m older. My dad waited until he was 40 years old to do the things he wanted to do and never got to do them. I’m more than capable now to do the things I do, so why put them off until tomorrow?

What amazing things are you going to do today?

Happy Trails and Happy Running,
