I remember watching Forrest Gump for the first time and being amazed by the concept of someone running across America, turning around, and doing it again… and again… and again. I feel pretty pleased if I can run a few miles! But alas, it was a movie, and Tom Hanks didn’t actually make that run. Because who could and would actually make that run?! Nobody makes that run.
Then came Rob Pope, a 39-year-old veterinarian from Liverpool. Rob Pope is an emergency veterinarian by night and runner by day.
