Member(s) of the Month
Chris & John Brust
We are pleased to announce our Members of the Month for February, Chris and John Brust!
Chris and John are the first brothers to complete a marathon on all seven continents together. As the saying goes "Life is a journey, not a destination", and what a journey they have had so far! From running wild at the Safaricom Marathon, to kayaking with humpbacks in the Antarctic, and experiencing China with their parents. Luckily for us, they have well documented these journeys in the following blog posts:
After beginning their quest in 2000, Chris & John completed their seven continent goal at the 2013 Rome Marathon, crossing the finish line together. This event and achievement was dedicated to their mom, Sara, who passed away in January 2013. The initial plan was for the entire family to travel to Italy together, as Sara had always wanted to visit and has studied the language for years. After her passing, Chris, John and their Dad attending the trip in her honor, and they knew that Sara was still very much there with them in spirit. "Mom would have loved to have been there with us, and she was, watching over us and smiling"- Chris. You can read more about their Rome Marathon trip at the following link:
