A blind man running a marathon is a serious feat. But Simon Wheatcroft is taking it a step (well, many miles) further.

The British ultra-marathoner, who lost his sight at age 17, has been running from Boston to New York City since October 23 with the help of RunKeeper.

You can track his progress here as he gets closer to arriving in Manhattan in time to compete in the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday. (Yes, the ultra-marathoner has been running to New York to compete in the marathon. Taper? What taper?)

Inspired by his story? You can meet Wheatcroft this Saturday, November 1, on the Hudson River, where he’s hosting a 2.8 mile “Shake It Out” run at 10:00 a.m. at W. 59th St. and Joe DiMaggio Highway to prepare for Sunday’s marathon.

After meeting him, we have a feeling that skipping a run because “it’s too early” won’t fly as well again. —Jamie McKillop
