From smoker to marathon runner

Posted by with 14 comments
I love the way running changes people! How it makes them healthier, more confident and happier. In this inspiring movie you see how a guy changes from a smoker into a marathon runner!

Or rather, fírst you see him as a marathon runner, and then you see him 'before'.


  1. I love this!! Just about brought tears to my eyes. As a former smoker, I now look back and think WTH was I doing to myself?!?! Ugh... Running was the final trigger that made me stop for good. Sunday I become a marathoner.

  2. I love this too. I think its great. I know a lot of smokers and I've heard every excuse under the sun as to why its no big deal, like for example, "Everyone has to die some day" excuse. I usually just look at them and say, well I guess mine might not be as long and drawn out as your death could be. But this is definitely inspirational!

    P.S. I am a new follower from the Totally Tuesdsay Blog Hop. I'd love for you check my blog out sometime.
