Marathon Instructions: Put one foot in front of the other. Repeat 100,000 times!!!

Ross and Mini-Mully at Yatta, Kenya in 2010
Over the past 23 years, Charles and Esther Mulli have adopted over 6,000 kids! They currently have over 2,000 in their care...and Charles knows them all by name. Back in 2008 Bernie invited me to hear Charles talk here in Calgary. His story impressed me so much that I remember saying to Bernie on the way home, "We need to do something to help Charles in his work...I know, let's do a fundraising run across Kenya. To which Bernie replied, "Absolutely...I'm in! How far is it across Kenya, anyway?"

Turns out it is about 1000 KM. We've been training and planning ever since. The Calgary marathon is an important milestone along the way. After all, we need to be able to do this marathon without expiring if we ever hope to do over 4 marathons a week for over a month by 2014.

Thanks for your support and thanks to all the other Old Guys in Action: Team Mully Children's Family 2012 Calgary Marathon team members. One foot in front of the other...repeat (100,000 times!) Click here to donate through the Calgary marathon website!
