Recently we had a guest on the 1 Meal – 1 Workout podcast named Roger Wright. You can click HERE to listen to his inspiring story. In a nutshell, he was 47 years old, 275 or so pounds, and decided that it was time to make a change. Ten months later, he weighed about 165 lbs, and ran the Boston Marathon in under 5 hours.
Roger told us that after he’d run his marathon, his friends and family, inspired by the changes he had made, started calling and requesting that he run marathons with THEM! In less than three years, he’s run 15 marathons. This led me to ask the question, “Have you ever run the Georgia Marathon?”
His response was that he hadn’t, but that if I would do it, he would travel from Massachusetts and run it with me. So I said, “I’m in!’
That night, I registered for the Publix Georgia Marathon, which will take place on March 17th. I had said previously that I would never run a marathon. That it “just wasn’t something I was interested in”. Roger changed my mind.
Long story short(ish)…I’m registered, and I’m running. Who’s with me? You can join the “1 Meal – 1 Workout” team. Right now, we’re #1 on the list!
