Interviewing a Legend

It’s not every day you get to speak to someone so prolific in their sport, but this celebrity took time out of his day to tell me about what his plans are for the future.

Bart, who is 54, ran the Comrades 56-miles ultra-distance race through South Africa in May with his Wife, Laura. Both of them ran as part of Team World Vision, a Christian international organization that dedicated to working with the over 100 million children, families, and communities by affected by poverty and injustice in over 100 countries all over the globe.

This was a big race for Bart. It was one of those races he’d never done, and now as he has battled Lyme Disease and the muscle degeneration that often happens with the disease, running, while enjoyable, is probably more of a chore now for Bart. Running this ultra-distance race was not only a life long accomplishment, but it was even more special that he ran this race after battling the disease for a couple of years.

My interview with Bart is on www.runnersillustrated.com. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed talking with Bart and writing the review.

Don’t forget to check out Bart’s book; an excellent read.
