    A new motivation powers the minds of the runners trekking across the country in search of promotion for a healthier America. It is less than one month to go until the finish of The Run on Nov. 11, 2011 in New York City.

    Dr. Dennis Godby, his sons Jeremiah Godby and Isiah Godby, and his nephew Jonas Ely are entering Pennsylvania in a journey that is nearing its hundredth day. “Jeremiah himself has run over 2,300 miles now and is well on his way to 3,100 miles by the end of the journey,” said Dr. Godby. This run has been one with many obstacles, but the group has tackled each with purpose.

    There is an influence on keeping a certain amount of normality while doing something so unique. Birthdays have been celebrated, friends have been made, escaped zoo animals have been avoided, but the people involved have always kept true to the cause itself. Natural medicine is no doubt something that is off the radar but now it is in the spotlight.

    Since July 17, 2011 the runners have been on a mission that defies all expectations for the promotion of a cause. Raising awareness on the topic of natural medicine is crucial for “the cure” for our national health crisis.

    Each day brings new surprises for the crew, “this morning we are focused on preventing hypothermia! It is about 40 degrees, wind blowing at 20-35 miles per hour, and continuous rain, which are the most ideal conditions for not being able to stay warm and can be potentially dangerous,” said Dr. Godby on some of the conditions they are facing.

    Each day of the final month of The Run holds a significance. This journey has been that none of the runners will be quick to forget. Each face, memory, and story they have encountered has fueled them to soldier on with a renewed sense of determination.
