Run Pharm Boy run: Charles Wickersham’s running story

Have you ever wondered what motivates a person to run for 24 hours?  I sure have.  I asked Burt Carlson that question last year while a group of us were sitting on the beach enjoying a cold Red Stripe.  For a man who has run countless marathons and ultras, his answer was unassuming:  “because it’s fun”.

Recently I came across the story of another ultra runner, Charles Wickersham. He has the same unassuming, matter-of-fact nature.  He started running to deal with stress.  The video, “Run Pharm Boy, Run!” was interesting and enjoyable.  Plus I loved his closing line, “I really need a beer”.

Burt and Charles, keep moving and may the wind always be at your back. And let’s enjoy another cold one on the beach in Negril this December.

Until next time…
