It began with the typical coming of age story: skinny kid goes out for the high school team, perseveres despite the odds, and eventually has his moment of glory.  Rick McGarry was that skinny kid who turned humble beginnings at Hatboro-Horsham High School into a successful collegiate running career at Penn State University.  Unlike the Hollywood storyline, Rick's story didn't end with one success, and he continued to test his limits after college - completing over 40 marathons with a personal best of 2:28:06.  Through the ups and downs, Rick learned one key point - success in running can be taught and he made it his goal to share that with others.
