In 1996, Terry Hitchcock ran from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn. to Atlanta, Ga. to raise awareness about the struggles of single parents.
Before he started his journey, he had never run a day in his life.
That journey is now chronicled in a book, "A Father's Odyssey" and a documentary, "My Run."
This article: "Good in the long run" in the Minneapolis Star Tribune gives more information about Hitchcock, his life and his struggles.
Hitchcock's story is a fascinating one. I'm looking forward to reading the book and seeing the documentary.
You can become a fan of the documentary on facebook and/or follow updates on twitter.
Minnesota readers, note there is a book signing in Uptown Minneapolis at locally-owned, independent book retailer Magers & Quinn on Wednesday, September 2.
I'll be there, will you?
