Tony is on a Forest Gump-like mission to jog around the globe. He departed from his home in Ireland on Oct 25th, 2010 and is currently 60+ days into a 2-3 year journey around the world.
As Irish luck would have it, part of his route runs right through Greater Lowell! He's expected to come through Lowell around Jan 3rd, 2011 and is headed to Hudson, MA where he has an aunt. How quaint.
I got in touch with Tony over the weekend and his only requirement for running with him is that you have to push his buggy, Nirvana.
(As long as he's not inside the buggy)
You can contact him directly here: THEWORLDJOG@GMAIL.COM
Needless to say, I'll be following Tony's blog and living vicariously through him over the next 2-3 years. Good Luck!
