As a personal fitness trainer and an ultra endurance athlete, April Hartsook runs a lot – sometimes as much as 30 miles a day. And over 26 days in December, she ran more than 200 miles to help raise money for the homeless.

The running was part of a national project called 26X26, an effort started by her friends, Dave Carlsson and Jason Lester, ultra endurance athletes who live in Hawaii. The two each ran 26.2 miles a day for 26 days, starting Dec. 1. Lester contacted Hartsook and asked her to organize teams across the country and around the world to raise money through running.
