Some might think Zoe Romano is a little obsessive when it comes to running. Others might just think she really went the distance for the Boys and Girls Clubs.
The 14-minute film, created by recent Salt graduate Alexander Kreher, focuses on Maine native Romano's unsupported transcontinental U.S. crossing. She was the first female to complete such an effort and will be on hand, with Kreher, for a Q&A following the screening.
Romano, of Portland, started her run in Huntington Beach, Calif., running 25 miles a day, six days a week until she reached Charleston, S.C. She ran without a support vehicle, pushing all of her supplies - food, camping gear, clothes, water - in a stroller. Her goal was to raise $25,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs. Learn more about her on her website.
Tonight's event is free and it's bound to get you inspired, whether you regulary run marathons or just a few miles a week.Tweet
