Peyton first gained recognition from a blog post he wrote called “The 10 Rules of Running…. from a 9-year old.” Despite the fact that he just started 5th grade, he’s already looking for ways to help the world be better for all of its creatures.
He recently decided to take on the challenge of running a half-marathon in order to raise money and awareness for wolves and their conservation. His goal is simple: finish with a smile. Payton is running 4 to 5 times per week with longer runs added on the weekends to improve his stamina.
His inspiration for running comes from the wolves he is trying to save as he thinks about the calmness and patience of a wolf hunting its prey.
