You canâ€™t help wondering if Joanna wishes sheâ€™d never made that bet back in April 2014. Does she? â€˜Yes, in a way,â€™ says Young. â€˜Weâ€™ve had our ups and downs. Iâ€™ve been away a lot and so itâ€™s been very tough, especially when it comes to money. If there was a constant income sheâ€™d be happy with all the running.â€™
Donors and friends have helped here and there â€“ one paid towards Youngâ€™s expenses for Race Across America and another paid the coupleâ€™s rent one month when things were particularly tight, but money has been a problem since Young left his job as a manager at a motor parts company to focus on running, a few months into his challenge. He now works part-time in a sports shop.
