'Marathon Man' in Meridian

Croix Sather spoke to students at Magnolia Middle School Tuesday, encouraging them to follow their dreams.

That's exactly what he's doing right now.

Sather only began running seriously a year ago. But soon after that, he decided he wanted to run from San Diego to New York, covering 30 miles a day for 100 days. Tuesday was day 40.

"The first five weeks or so has been excruciatingly painful," said Sather. "It was almost debilitating at times. But now I've gotten into a rhythm, and it's become almost routine, almost."

Sather is traveling with a four-man team, which includes a truck driver, an RV driver and a videographer. He has also written a book, 'Dream Big, Act Big'.
