After an arm injury cut his collegeate pitching career short, you could say that today's guest took some off of athletics. So much so, in fact, that he gained the weight equivalent of another version of himself - 180 pounds to be exact.
After some failed attempts to reverse course and resigned to this fate, he told his folks that maybe they should stop pushing him to lose the weight and end his sedintary lifestyle - he just didn't see a solution within himself.
Then, he found what many would consider to be an unlikely catalyst that would get him off the couch and out onto the first of what would be many runs in his journey to losing 180 pounds and running his first 40 mile Ultra in Pennsylvania. What was the secret? Well, you'll have to listen to the show to find out.
