Stewartville students: What do you think about Mr. Parry running and walking 100 miles in 24 hours?

Raegan Boughner, 12, sixth-grader, Stewartville

I can barely even run for an hour. I think it's hard to go 100 miles without stopping. He told me he can stay in discomfort for a long period of time. He inspires me, and he's a role model because he's my teacher. I look up to him. For my exercise, I do gymnastics, and I like track. I started track last year. When I met Mr. Parry, it inspired me.

Caitlin Malone, 12, sixth-grader, Stewartville

I think it would be really hard to do. I like to exercise. I play soccer. I exercise a lot. I think it's really great that he does this. People need exercise. It's good for your body. At home, my brother has weights downstairs, and I run to my friend's house and back, which is about a mile.

Lauren Horstmann, 10, fourth-grader, Rochester

I think it's great. With him doing this, it gets other people up from the couch and not just sitting and watching TV. He has inspired me to exercise more. When I get older, I think I might try what he's doing. Right now I like to run and lift weights...Exercise is good for your heart, and it keeps you alive longer. It gives you more energy. Mr. Parry is a role model to me. He likes to run and he's a teacher. I like running, and when I grow up I want to be a teacher.

Jordan Johnson, 12, sixth-grader, Stewartville

I think it's a great thing for all kids. He's really inspiring a lot of people. I think it's really great what he's doing. He looks like he's going to pass out, but he just keeps going and going. I run a lot, too, and he has inspired me to work harder. I do weight training after school...Exercise is good for you. It keeps you healthy. I think what Mr. Parry is doing teaches a lesson about life -- to never give up when things get rough.
