Heavy man trains to run a marathon, losing weight and improving his fitness enough to increase speed and qualify for Boston!
From the video creator:
Hello! I initially launched this website to keep everyone that knows me updated on my progress as I pursued my lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon. On 04/20/09, I accomplished my goal, running Boston nonstop in 4:45. In the process I lost a significant amount of weight and extended my life, all within a relatively short 10 month period simply by changing my eating and exercise habits.
Unfortunately my 12 year old niece Julia is not as fortunate, having been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis within 3 days of her birth. I was able to save my life and it is now my life's goal to do whatever I can to help save hers through running marathons.
I also want to show others that you can change your life, regardless of your age or physical condition and that if you believe in yourself, that you CAN obtain goals in life that may seem impossible. If you tell yourself you can, you will. I am living proof of that. Contact: Roger@RFME.org
