Freedom Run: Dreaming Big, Going Further In 2012 at the age of 39, Jamie Summerlin ran across the United States, completing the equivalent of 132 back-to-back marathons in 100 days, running an average of more than 240 miles a week, all to raise awareness and honor our Military & US Veterans. Jamie’s Freedom Run speaking message and the imagery of the run are universal, whether you’re an athlete or not. It’s about realizing a dream that less than 2 1/2 years prior to his mind-blowing run seemed impossible, and working as a team to understand the strengths and weaknesses that would help make that dream a reality. It’s about not allowing bumps in the road to slow you down, or the hills ahead tempting you to give up hope. It’s about finding inspiration through others to help you achieve personal goals that otherwise seemed insurmountable. Ultimately, it’s about staring fear in the face, digging deep from within, overcoming physical and mental hurdles, and inspiring others to Dream Big!
