Eugene's marathon effort offers inspiration to us all
Those of us thinking of turning over a new leaf in 2018 should take inspiration from Eugene Winters, the 60-year-old Portstewart man who just cannot stop running marathons. It was only five years ago that he completed his first, and now he has run more than 300.
While his story may be one of extreme dedication and application, it shows that anyone is capable of transforming their lives given the right level of determination.
We send Eugene our best as he hopes to set a new world record for the most marathons run by a person aged 60-plus in under four hours, and perhaps he will inspire others to follow in his footsteps.
