Last year, Glenn Miller’s Mum Margot was diagnosed with metastatic cancer. She had a most simple dream, to spend undisturbed, quality time with her husband Des, and away from the busy city. The couple took a short break in Queensland. Glenn said “The transformation in Mum, both pre and post dream was incredible.”
“I saw how having something to look forward to, a goal to focus on, made such a massive impact on Mum’s mind. It motivated her to push forward, despite her disposition, and built up strength in her mind, enabling sheer determination and stronger will to fight … it made such a huge difference. The power of her Dream made an impression of a lifetime on her and my entire family,” said Glenn.
“I have a passion for mind-bending ultra challenges. From ultra distances on soft sand to ultra trails across country, I never realised how similar my mindset for ultra events is to the significance of Mum’s daily challenges now. I have done many events but never to raise money. In July this year, Mum inspired me to ask her if there was a charity I could raise funds for, in her honour. She immediately selected Dreams2Live4 and together with my training partner, I decided to ‘up the ante’, choosing to do the 4x4x48 Challenge just like its inventor,” added Glenn.
What is 4x4x48 – The ‘Challenge’?
David Goggins invented a Challenge, the 4 x 4 x 48 challenge. A runner runs 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours. In May 2020, Guy Miller and Glenn Miller, two ordinary dads who love to run and enjoy a challenge, piloted 4kms (instead of miles) every 4 hours for 48 hours and completed that 4x4x48 as a 56km ‘Challenge’.
On 27th November 2020, Glenn and Guy will do this amazing ‘Challenge’ the way the inventor intended: 4 miles(6.4kms) every 4 hours for 48 hours (totaling 76kms) AND they will do it to raise funds for Dreams2Live4 so that more dreams can come true,
This 4x4x48 Challenge is more than just a run. It’s a chance to stop, think about yourself, think about others. A chance to push yourself, your mind and your body beyond YOUR personal limits. A chance to challenge yourself.
