INSPIRATIONAL!! Australia couple pledges to run 365 marathons in 2013 to demonstrate the benefits of a vegan-raw lifestyle and to raise money for charity. In 2000, seniors Alan and Jeannette Murray-Wakelin ran 50 marathons in 50 days. Ten years ago Jeanette was diagnosed with breast cancer and was given six months to live. She believes eating raw, vegan food saved her life. The couple ran 42 km on January 1st.
