Real-Life Forrest Gump Is Running Across US in Less Than 100 Days

Barclay Oudersluys is now over halfway done with his cross-country run.

Barclay Oudersluys had logged about 2,000 miles of his run by Friday, which was day 63 of the trip.

According to his Crowdrise site, called Project Gump, Oudersluys is trying to raise $10,000 on his trip for the Hall Steps Foundation -- a group that fights poverty by improving health.

The foundation was started by a couple, Sara and Ryan Hall, who are both professional runners.

Oudersluys usually begins his runs around 6 a.m. and ends between noon and 2 p.m. and runs about 31 to 32 miles a day in around five to seven hours -- rain or shine.

Just like his favorite movie, Oudersluys started his cross-country marathon at the Santa Monica Pier in California in May, and he plans to finish at the famed lighthouse in Rockland, Maine.
