Running for My Existence by Roger Wright

This is the inspiring story of Roger Wright. At age 47, and weighing in at nearly 250lbs, he decided to change his life. Over the next 10 months, he lost over 100lbs, raised money for Cystic Fibrosis and fulfilled his lifelong dream to run the Boston Marathon.

“I have discovered that regardless of my age, previous eating habits, a complete lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle, that I have been able to change my life for the better. I have accomplished this simply by changing the way I look at food (I eat to live, not live to eat), started to exercise, no longer accepted excuses and most important, pure desire to help my niece, other people (friends and strangers) and myself. I know it’s cliche to say, but I have discovered that if you really want something bad enough, you really can accomplish it.”

“You don’t try to build a wall. You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say ‘I’m gonna lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid,’ and you do that every single day, and soon you have a wall.”
