EJ Scott runs on Christmas to Prepare for the 2020 Chicago Marathon!

On Christmas Day EJ Scott ran a marathon in Santa Monica with his wife, Deborah Ann Woll in order to prepare for the Chicago Marathon!  He wrote on Twitter:

“This morning I woke up at 5:30 am and ran my first 10k in Santa Monica for Christmas! I was completely unprepared for it. So it was difficult. 6.2 miles in 97 minutes. It’s a good start to 2020 and the marathon I signed up for in Chicago. January 1st a lot needs to change. Here we go!”

Yes, I’m running! Crazy. Chicago! That’s the goal anyway. I’ll be raising money for Foundation Fighting Blindness and CRF
