Kate McKenzie's secret marathon in Afghanistan
1 day ago
When legendary marathon runner, Martin Parnell, had a life threatening blood clot he was inspired to recover and run again when he read about the first courageous Afghan woman to participate in a marathon in her own country. He invited young filmmaker, Kate McKenzie to join him in documenting the journey and trained her to run her first ever marathon. Training and preparing in secret to avoid making the race a target for terrorist attack, they journey together to Afghanistan. There they meet several runners along the way, each with their own obstacle to overcome, each determined to support the dream that everyone should be free to run.
Kate was gracious enough to spend some time on The Global Shuffle talking about this experience.
