"In early 2010, Patrick McGlade ran from Huntington Beach, California to Tybee Island, Georgia. He ran across the United States in order to raise money and awareness for juvenile arthritis. The journey was a total of 2,553 miles and he averaged 30 miles per day. Though the run was challenging, the real inspiration came from the people he met along the way. Out of all the people he met, he never met one terrorist, shoe bomber, rapist, murderer, stabber, kidnapper, mugger, cheater, liar, sniper, jerk, bully or any other stereotypical bad guy. He met good people. And this is the story of those good people."
Patrick McGlade still runs and races ultra marathons. He will most likely run until he dies. He and Katie are still together and continue to spread the word about juvenile arthritis. Patrick may be planning another long adventure...who knows? Keep up with him at patricksrunblog.blogspot.com
