LSU student to run 100 miles

Thursday, April 1, 2010 - 3:22pm

An LSU student will push his body to the limits by running a one hundred mile ultra-marathon this weekend in the name of our country’s fallen soldiers.

Starting Saturday afternoon Sgt. Brad McKee will begin running his route that will start in Hammond and loop to as far as the French Quarter and back.

McKee plans on running the 100 miles without stopping—and he expects it'll take him about 24 hours to complete.

McKee says the marathon is all part of a personal mission that's been in the making for a few years now.

"I never thought I couldn’t do it. I’ve always had a positive mindset. I’ll just think one foot in front of the other and eventually I’ll cross the finish line"

Mckee is hoping completion of this feat will raise money for families of wounded warriors.
