Kicker - Cross-country mouse trot

WORLD Radio - Kicker - Cross-country mouse trot


NICK EICHER, HOST: Don Muchow has a message for everyone else living with type-1 diabetes: Don’t let it hold you back!

And that’s not just a nice sentiment. The Texan is walking the talk!

Well, running, to be precise.

He recently completed a long run from one park to another. He began at Disneyland in California and finished at Disney World. Yes! Coast to coast.

Muchow became the first person to run from one Disney property to the other: 26-hundred miles.

A crowd of supporters cheered him at the end.

AUDIO: [cheering, talking]

EICHER: Muchow is 59-years-old. He spread the run out over the course of a year rather than his original plan to run it in 90 days, thanks to Covid.

But he never considered quitting.

Here he is after his run, talking to TV station WESH.

MUCHOW: I have just been on cloud 9 since then.

EICHER: And how will he celebrate his accomplishment?

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Have fun at Disney World?

EICHER: Well, he did leave the closed one in California for the open one in Florida, so why not?

It’s The World and Everything in It.
