Ultrarunner Scott Jurek is running the Boston Marathon this year as a guide for a visually-impaired runner as part of the Massachusetts Association for the Blind‘s Team With A Vision. Scott is guiding Thomas Panek, the CEO of Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a non-profit that provides guide dogs for those who need them.
Here’s their Team With A Vision fundraising page.
The day before the race, I spoke with Scott about guiding after he went out with Thomas and the Clif Bar group for a short pre-race shakeout run:
Here’s Scott talking with Thomas before the run, with Thomas’ wife looking on and his guide dog Gus making sure I don’t get too close.
