How long was the last run you went on? A few miles? Maybe 45 minutes to an hour? Ok, let's say you're a "runner" and it was your "long run" for the week...so maybe 10 to 12 miles? Thinking about it...is there anything in your life that you're passionate enough about to run 85 miles - 28 HOURS - for? For Swarm Collective member Ed Ignacio, a law enforcement officer in Hawaii, running 85 miles for the families of his fellow officers who have fallen in the line of duty was a no brainer. In fact, he sees it as his duty, and in doing so has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars, completed numerous endurance events in police gear, including the iconic Ironman Hawaii, and recruited the next generation of Hawaii's law enforcement to carry on his endurance tradition in the name of fallen officers.
Recently Ed and his fellow officer completed a special run in his home state of Hawaii, and the response to their heroic effort was nothing short of inspiring. Read below to find out why Ed and officer Gaspar ran for 28 hours straight and how the effort unfolded. Oh yeah, and how they used Primo Smoothie in both their training and during the actual run.
