The twist – the book would be written with the help of the very students who sat before McGillivray that November day, hanging on his every word.

He was one of the few humans on the Earth who could honestly say he had finished 26 consecutive Boston Marathons. But getting him to brag about it, or even elaborate on the feat, was a chore.

THE BOSTON GLOBE

The first marathon, in Novo, Antartica, was tough. The second and the third were the same. But by the fourth and fifth, Dave McGillivray’s fatigue was fading and his legs felt firmer beneath him. And in Miami, running his seventh marathon on seven continents in seven days, he felt so good the only thing stopping the 63-year-old from going for eight was that he’d run out of continents.
