“There’s nothing impossible!” – Ivan Castro

NOTHING! Just believe in and give yourself a chance!

Here’s some news about some special friends who have run our Pocono Marathon several times. Lt Colonel Fred Dummar and Major Ivan Castro Special Forces Veterans just ran with the bulls in Pamplona. Ivan is completely blind, he lost his sight in battle in Iraq. His guide Fred Dummar, better known a “Doom” in the Ultra community leads Ivan in marathons and ultra-marathons. They have raced 100 mile events in this fashion as well as several Boston’s and many, many marathons.

Here’s some info about these special men: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/pushing-the-limits-ivan-castro-blind-army-vet-runs-with-the-bulls-pamplona/

The friendship Ivan and Fred share is a blessing I pray we all live to experience!

Make you’re a great week folks!
