In Episode 31 of Find Your Fit, Jessica and Amber interview Jim Gump, an ultra-runner from England who has been running every single day since January 1, 2013 and is doing it in a way to inspire adults, children, and families around the world to get out and get moving.
He was inspired by the 2012 Olympics in London. He and his dog, Alfredo, began running an average of 7 miles a day and raised money for several great charities while doing it. Alfredo even became an official hero of their local city! Running each day allowed Jim to become stronger and faster than he had ever been before! Each year Jim increased his daily commitment. In 2015 he committed to doing a triathlon each day and since then has been unstoppable.
Jim has been inviting people to join in on the fun through an amazing campaign called Kx365. Find out more about this life-changing opportunity in this incredible interview!
Jim quickly became inspired to do more to contribute to the world, so he began traveling all around the world visiting schools to inspire children to get moving. He has ran across the United States and visited hundreds of kids. He tells us several exhilarating stories from running on dirt roads in the deep south to being chased by a pack of wild pigs! Jim is still on his journey of inspiring adults, children, and families to participate in physical activity each day.
