If you are looking for inspiration, look here

Last month's Runner's World was devoted to common readers who have done uncommon things.  Among the runners featured were ex-cons and cancer survivors.  My favorite story featured Ben Davis.  Ben lost 120+ lbs through diet and exercise.  He has completed multiple marathons and triathlons and shares his story with others struggling with obesity and depression.

He made a video scrapbook of his transformation that became a YouTube sensation, and he continues to chronicle his journey on his blog.  I've included links to both.


  1. An inspiration indeed! I met him this summer. He's the inspiration behind my sisters 116 pound weight loss, and my dad starting to run at age 67. He has plans to be back in Omaha next summer. I'd recommend being there :)
