Moncton area middle school teacher Armand Doucet is putting words into action as he tries to inspire New Brunswickers to lead a healthier lifestyle. Doucet is running 30 kilometres a day for 30 days as a way of challenging people to do 30 minutes a day of any physical activity. CBC New Brunswick is chronicling Doucet's IronWill Challenge, which he'll wrap up on on April 25 by running 90 kilometres, or a little more than two full marathons, in one day.
