22
[00:01:31],650 –> [00:01:36],930

[00:01:47],520 –> [00:01:52],470
below monterey california and the
farthest north i’ve been was hit

26
[00:01:52],470 –> [00:01:58],48
probably a last weekend in Fargo North
Dakota and then I i was in Boston

27
[00:01:58],49 –> [00:02:01],799
earlier for the Boston Marathon that’s
that’s about as far northeast I’ve been

28
[00:02:01],799 –> [00:02:05],250
so all that about four weeks how about
that

29
[00:02:05],250 –> [00:02:09],780

it’s pretty amazing to see where you are

30
[00:02:09],780 –> [00:02:11],430
every single week

31
[00:02:11],430 –> [00:02:15],420
yes it’s been a lot of traveling the
backs of impact but I’m glad it’s

32
[00:02:15],420 –> [00:02:19],559
summertime and now I’m ah I don’t have
too many more trips till we get back to

33
[00:02:19],560 –> [00:02:23],909
the fall so what would you say is your
biggest inspiration my biggest

34
[00:02:23],909 –> [00:02:30],30
inspiration is absolutely without a
doubt my little girls and my wife Anna I

35
[00:02:30],30 –> [00:02:35],790
have two daughters right now their
agents are eight now five and my oldest

36
[00:02:35],790 –> [00:02:37],660
is the eight-year-old Emma and

37
[00:02:37],660 –> [00:02:42],220
I got youngest is a five-year-old
Abigail and without a doubt those two

38
[00:02:42],220 –> [00:02:48],310
those two girls and my wife and inspired
me to a lot of things that I once

39
[00:02:48],310 –> [00:02:49],240
thought impossible

40
[00:02:49],240 –> [00:02:53],920
well I got to meet your wife and Emma
just the what three weeks ago we ran

41
[00:02:53],920 –> [00:02:57],700
together in disney world that’s correct
we ran the everest expedition everest

42
[00:02:57],700 –> [00:03:03],10
challenge so you definitely got to make
Emma and Anna it was it was a lot of fun

43
[00:03:03],10 –> [00:03:09],549
and your daughter is just adorable and
very inspiring at the same time there

44
[00:03:09],550 –> [00:03:15],790
she had a blast running with you and now
she see xie she has some spunk to her no

45
[00:03:15],790 –> [00:03:20],530
doubt so how does your dream come about
well let’s see i’ll go back to right

46
[00:03:20],530 –> [00:03:24],970
before right when when my youngest
daughter was born a B and M which

47
[00:03:24],970 –> [00:03:32],680
probably around choose two years old I
was weighing in about 310 pounds and at

48
[00:03:32],680 –> [00:03:38],20
that time i went to a doctor for a
checkup got you know that you know how

49
[00:03:38],20 –> [00:03:43],720
to do your do your blood pressure and
everything and man my blood pressure my

50
[00:03:43],720 –> [00:03:48],490
cholesterol was just skyrocketing so
it’s like a life notice right there that

51
[00:03:48],490 –> [00:03:53],470
I want to be around to see my kids for
for living it you know to see them

52
[00:03:53],470 –> [00:03:57],310
graduate college and everything else
going forward then i need to change

53
[00:03:57],310 –> [00:04:01],390
something in my life that was the moment
that I decided that I don’t know Howard

54
[00:04:01],390 –> [00:04:04],779
didn’t know what I was going to do but I
was going to get my butt in shape and

55
[00:04:04],780 –> [00:04:06],520
get get active and get healthy

56
[00:04:06],520 –> [00:04:11],739
well what got you started in running
well it was it was kind of process after

57
[00:04:11],739 –> [00:04:17],590
after that that scared the doctor i
immediately went to the gym the next day

58
[00:04:17],589 –> [00:04:22],419
and signed up literally we had a we had
a 24-hour gym that literally had just

59
[00:04:22],419 –> [00:04:27],370
was just doing a grand opening less than
a half mile from my house so i mainly

60
[00:04:27],370 –> [00:04:32],530
just signed up for that I started going
to the gym every day and got on the

61
[00:04:32],530 –> [00:04:36],130
elliptical machine and the elliptical
machine maybe became best buddies in

62
[00:04:36],130 –> [00:04:39],730
doing that I didn’t quite do a diet of
any sort

63
[00:04:39],730 –> [00:04:43],660
I just literally started watching what i
would eat and end portion controls and

64
[00:04:43],660 –> [00:04:48],610
things of that nature and over the
course of about a year and a half i lost

65
[00:04:48],610 –> [00:04:51],310
about a hundred twenty pounds from that

66
[00:04:51],310 –> [00:04:56],200
point on I was I’d go to the gym I i
will continue to always go to the gym

67
[00:04:56],200 –> [00:05:02],110
and I had a friend that would show up in
and we would lift at the same time and I

68
[00:05:02],110 –> [00:05:05],680
start talking because he was a disney
fan so you know how Disney fans can

69
[00:05:05],680 –> [00:05:10],270
unite on common front and now I was a
disney for anybody with a runner and he

70
[00:05:10],270 –> [00:05:13],719
said you know you need you really gotta
you need to come run with me you need to

71
[00:05:13],720 –> [00:05:17],230
try running away and it’s like now I got
bad knees bad news you can’t run with

72
[00:05:17],230 –> [00:05:19],240
bad knees I can’t do that

73
[00:05:19],240 –> [00:05:25],840
so eventually he talked me into doing
the wine and dine half marathon and so I

74
[00:05:25],840 –> [00:05:29],440
said we know i’m not going to run
outside allah i’ll do it will be a

75
[00:05:29],440 –> [00:05:34],540
one-and-done type deal so I trained on
the elliptical machine and this was this

76
[00:05:34],540 –> [00:05:38],80
is maybe this is almost three years
after I lost away but i was still

77
[00:05:38],80 –> [00:05:41],109
actively in the gym but i would
continually I would just get on with

78
[00:05:41],110 –> [00:05:44],740
this machine I do long run section
listing machine like two-and-a-half

79
[00:05:44],740 –> [00:05:50],200
hours on the list machine just training
my butt off and I’ve never run more than

80
[00:05:50],200 –> [00:05:54],430
in my life more than four miles at one
time and I hadn’t run a year before I

81
[00:05:54],430 –> [00:05:56],230
ran the wine and dine at all

82
[00:05:56],230 –> [00:05:59],770
I you know I tried it once or twice
outside thought this was the dumbest

83
[00:05:59],770 –> [00:06:04],510
thing ever it’s hard as heck and I don’t
like it but we went to wine and dine and

84
[00:06:04],510 –> [00:06:10],150
actually ran it without stopping the
whole way through never hit run outside

85
[00:06:10],150 –> [00:06:14],859
never done you know any of this stuff
and actually finished and without

86
[00:06:14],860 –> [00:06:18],970
stopping and in you know actually had a
decent time which I didn’t know at the

87
[00:06:18],970 –> [00:06:23],110
time I had no idea what a good time or a
bad time was but I was just under two

88
[00:06:23],110 –> [00:06:26],800
hours and but I collapsed was dead but I
was hooked

89
[00:06:26],800 –> [00:06:30],70
I was hooked on the on the only
environment ever since then i started

90
[00:06:30],70 –> [00:06:35],440
sign up for five days and left and right
every weekend and then half marathons

91
[00:06:35],440 –> [00:06:39],550
then within six months I decided you
know what I i think i can do a marathon

92
[00:06:40],120 –> [00:06:43],870
that’s the kind of spiral from that
point on well I mean you know I I’m a

93
[00:06:43],870 –> [00:06:45],610
big disney fan

94
[00:06:45],610 –> [00:06:49],90
where and when did your disney obsession
come into play

95
[00:06:49],90 –> [00:06:54],489
oh my disney obsession that disney was
something that I’ve always loved it’s a

96
[00:06:54],490 –> [00:06:59],50
kid my mom and dad we didn’t go that
often very very really we go but we may

97
[00:06:59],50 –> [00:07:01],810
be went two or three times but it was
something I was always fascinated with

98
[00:07:01],810 –> [00:07:04],920
my wife like Disney as well and she went
more

99
[00:07:04],920 –> [00:07:09],780
night and I’ve never stayed on property
until after we got married and literally

100
[00:07:09],780 –> [00:07:14],130
we would go on an annual trip starting
about 2004 and so that’s about that we

101
[00:07:14],130 –> [00:07:17],159
go once a year for 2004 on and then

102
[00:07:17],160 –> [00:07:23],430
well now its its its way out of control
but that’s how it started yeah it’s easy

103
[00:07:23],430 –> [00:07:26],550
for it together out of control once you
have an annual pass

104
[00:07:26],550 –> [00:07:30],600
oh yes the annual pass just breathes a
lot more and now I think we’re there

105
[00:07:30],600 –> [00:07:34],320
almost every month it seems like wow
well I mean you’re a lot closer yeah i’m

106
[00:07:34],320 –> [00:07:39],450
not sure i can drive on it it’s not
unheard of that I have a thought on a

107
[00:07:39],450 –> [00:07:42],570
friday afternoon hey what are we doing
we got nothing well let’s let’s just

108
[00:07:42],570 –> [00:07:46],320
drive down the disney and friday after
work and come back sunday we’ve done

109
[00:07:46],320 –> [00:07:47],310
that multiple times

110
[00:07:47],310 –> [00:07:50],550
actually it’s funny you mention that
because i was just talking earlier with

111
[00:07:50],550 –> [00:07:56],670
with Michelle screaming mclean and we
had mentioned that you ran in Georgia

112
[00:07:56],670 –> [00:07:59],310
and then drove down to orlando for a
race

113
[00:07:59],310 –> [00:08:05],730
oh yes yes yes I that was there was
another goofy challenge that we we

114
[00:08:05],730 –> [00:08:10],770
started that I talked to talk one of my
good friends Michael Miller into had

115
[00:08:10],770 –> [00:08:14],669
signed up for 242 races they the
previous year they’re on different

116
[00:08:14],670 –> [00:08:18],900
weekends so I didn’t we think I didn’t
bad and I one was winding down and one

117
[00:08:18],900 –> [00:08:22],739
of them with Savannah marathon but they
were always on different weekends and it

118
[00:08:22],740 –> [00:08:28],110
turned out this past year tip they moved
the race they moved Savannah or I can’t

119
[00:08:28],110 –> [00:08:30],990
remember things winding down the move
one of them and they’re on the same day

120
[00:08:30],990 –> [00:08:34],860
and then I could figure out I figured
out that i could run the Savannah

121
[00:08:34],860 –> [00:08:38],909
marathon in the morning and be able to
drive down and run wine and dine that

122
[00:08:38],909 –> [00:08:42],780
evening what we call it goofy in a day
so yeah run a marathon in the morning

123
[00:08:42],780 –> [00:08:45],480
and then drive down to Disney and ran
the half that evening

124
[00:08:45],480 –> [00:08:49],860
yeah it’s great you had your ugly
christmas sweater text shirts on

125
[00:08:49],860 –> [00:08:54],360
oh yes we we like to have fun you know
with with running there there are some

126
[00:08:54],360 –> [00:08:59],100
serious times there’s time to have you
know to go to push yourself and there’s

127
[00:08:59],100 –> [00:09:02],10
time to have fun so when I run with
friends

128
[00:09:02],10 –> [00:09:06],300
I’m having fun and if it’s not you know
that I’m pushing you know when I first

129
[00:09:06],300 –> [00:09:09],959
started running when you’re running a
marathon there’s just the biggest goals

130
[00:09:09],960 –> [00:09:13],890
a marathoner that you can think of it as
get to Boston because that’s kind of the

131
[00:09:13],890 –> [00:09:18],330
the elite that kind of meat not
necessary that your elite but it you’re

132
[00:09:18],330 –> [00:09:18],510
the

133
[00:09:18],510 –> [00:09:22],80
best the best if you can qualify for
that race and then that’s like the gold

134
[00:09:22],80 –> [00:09:25],440
standard you know there was something I
aspire to do once i got into running

135
[00:09:25],440 –> [00:09:31],320
after my first marathon I knew I i have
the ability to and I push real hard and

136
[00:09:31],320 –> [00:09:36],510
I actually I qualified for boston within
a within a year of us actually running

137
[00:09:36],510 –> [00:09:41],370
so which is almost unheard of not a lot
of people qualified fastest idea but

138
[00:09:41],370 –> [00:09:47],160
just did a lot of work work ethic but
with running there is the serious times

139
[00:09:47],160 –> [00:09:51],569
and then there’s some fun times so the
fun times I carry around a GoPro and a

140
[00:09:51],570 –> [00:09:56],820
and a and a handheld camera and I go out
and have have a blast and put videos

141
[00:09:56],820 –> [00:10:01],590
together and man we can have a lot of
fun we have a party out on the course

142
[00:10:01],590 –> [00:10:05],580
when I’m out there having fun when it’s
serious it’s a whole different world but

143
[00:10:05],580 –> [00:10:08],610
i like it i like having the two
different worlds and with inside running

144
[00:10:08],610 –> [00:10:12],210
yeah it’s really great that you’re able
to separate yourself from that like that

145
[00:10:12],210 –> [00:10:14],940
you’re not trying to hit a personal
record every time you step out on the

146
[00:10:14],940 –> [00:10:18],960
course now you definitely gotta mix it
up to some point you gotta have some way

147
[00:10:18],960 –> [00:10:22],980
to mix it up if everything’s all about
running as hard as you can as fast you

148
[00:10:22],980 –> [00:10:28],380
Candace is often you can you burn
yourself out so to me you never have to

149
[00:10:28],380 –> [00:10:32],310
kick me in the butt to go run i love i
love running if there was no races i

150
[00:10:32],310 –> [00:10:36],000
would be out there every morning
regardless running just because it is my

151
[00:10:36],000 –> [00:10:40],710
solace to start the day a little bit of

start my day going to the gym for an

153
[00:10:44],580 –> [00:10:49],80

155
[00:10:53],220 –> [00:10:57],390
more thing i didn’t even think you’re up
that early at three in the morning I

156
[00:10:57],390 –> [00:11:02],670
thought it was more like four but either
way it’s that still very that’s a lot of

157
[00:11:02],670 –> [00:11:07],709
dedication it it is a lot of dedication
but it like it goes back to when I when

158
[00:11:07],710 –> [00:11:10],470
I first started losing weight I started
getting up at three in the morning man

159
[00:11:10],470 –> [00:11:12],240

160
[00:11:12],240 –> [00:11:16],440

hour on the with machine an hour lifting

161
[00:11:16],440 –> [00:11:21],30

163
[00:11:26],70 –> [00:11:31],680

165
[00:11:32],190 –> [00:11:37],410

of rest before then right

166
[00:11:37],920 –> [00:11:44],849
oh yeah man I I think lazy to a
profession so so I gotta ask how is your

167
[00:11:44],850 –> [00:11:49],920
your dream of living a long healthy life
received by your family as well as

168
[00:11:49],920 –> [00:11:55],199
others received really well it’s it’s
amazing you know to have my wife get

169
[00:11:55],200 –> [00:11:59],700
behind me you know and always stay
behind me and Lord knows she she calls

170
[00:11:59],700 –> [00:12:04],980
me her long-term investment has paid off
so haha and i got my button shape that

171
[00:12:04],980 –> [00:12:09],960
way but you know it’s it’s been a great
thing I remember the one of the things

172
[00:12:09],960 –> [00:12:13],740
that help motivate me I remember when my
daughter was born we did a little video

173
[00:12:13],740 –> [00:12:20],160
of our house you know to show show Emma
when she was born what what what our

174
[00:12:20],160 –> [00:12:24],60
house look like with cars were driving
and then we did a video telling our

175
[00:12:24],60 –> [00:12:28],79
thoughts and i remember in the video
clearly and i still have it that I said

176
[00:12:28],80 –> [00:12:31],470
when you watch this video I hope when
you look at it you will not realize you

177
[00:12:31],470 –> [00:12:35],40
will not recognize me because I will not
look like this that I look skinny when

178
[00:12:35],40 –> [00:12:38],310
my girl see pictures and make fat they
don’t recognize me they’ve never seen me

179
[00:12:38],310 –> [00:12:43],500
in their eyes is it somebody that was
big so they don’t think this can’t

180
[00:12:43],500 –> [00:12:48],330
believe that’s me and in and they have
my parents my brother and my sister you

181
[00:12:48],330 –> [00:12:52],890
know it’s a it’s amazing you know how
house for they’ve always have been and

182
[00:12:52],890 –> [00:12:57],150
you know they they understand I’ve been
inspired they’ve all lost some my mom

183
[00:12:57],150 –> [00:13:01],439
dad my sister of all lost weight and
they say that helped me that help me

184
[00:13:01],440 –> [00:13:06],990
help them inspire them so yeah it’s been
good to have them could you go into

185
[00:13:06],990 –> [00:13:10],860
depth explaining the steps that you took
to get started I know you said that the

186
[00:13:10],860 –> [00:13:16],290
unit 24 hour gym opened up and you know
you started that’s when it all just came

187
[00:13:16],290 –> [00:13:20],579
together at the right time in the right
place but was there any specific steps

188
[00:13:20],580 –> [00:13:25],800
that helped you get started that help
you get over that hump of its 3am and

189
[00:13:25],800 –> [00:13:32],160
I’m up let alone doing something well
without everyone every success becomes

190
[00:13:32],160 –> [00:13:37],680
several failures along the way they get
to that point there there’s never been a

191
[00:13:37],680 –> [00:13:43],319
person this lost weight that hadn’t done
a diet quote-unquote diet that they lose

192
[00:13:43],320 –> [00:13:45],540
weight you know so you lose

193
[00:13:45],540 –> [00:13:49],439
I’ve done two diets where I one lost 70
pounds and when I lost 40 but I gained

194
[00:13:49],440 –> [00:13:50],639
it all back

195
[00:13:50],639 –> [00:13:57],000
so you realize that diets the diets
don’t work the word diet is is a bad

196
[00:13:57],000 –> [00:14:01],350
word me if it does it’s not right it’s
not you have to have a lifestyle change

197
[00:14:01],350 –> [00:14:04],949
you have something you have to have
something you commit to you can’t you

198
[00:14:04],949 –> [00:14:09],60
can’t change yourself and deprive
yourself of things you’d like it just

199
[00:14:09],60 –> [00:14:14],279
doesn’t work you have to you can you can
win yourself all the things so i took

200
[00:14:14],279 –> [00:14:18],839
the past failures of losing weight and
gained it all back and saying what can I

201
[00:14:18],839 –> [00:14:23],130
do now and what like what i did was i I
didn’t give up anything i love didn’t

202
[00:14:23],130 –> [00:14:26],790
drive myself I just said you know what
i’ll be very disciplined monday through

203
[00:14:26],790 –> [00:14:31],79
friday and i’ll be lakhs on the weekend
I’ll get myself when I wall but what

204
[00:14:31],79 –> [00:14:32],910
happened is the more I lost weight

205
[00:14:32],910 –> [00:14:38],670
the healthier got the better my choices
became naturally without me wanting the

206
[00:14:38],670 –> [00:14:43],199
other things it you know it didn’t know
a lot of the bad things i like I don’t

207
[00:14:43],199 –> [00:14:48],959
like anymore i came sand even eaten out
but is it it took a slow weaning off and

208
[00:14:48],959 –> [00:14:53],518
actually controlling and limiting not
depriving myself but not having it all

209
[00:14:53],519 –> [00:14:57],750
the time just it became a lifestyle just
a lifestyle not a diet

210
[00:14:57],750 –> [00:15:02],160
no I know exactly what you mean i i’ve
gone through periods of time where I win

211
[00:15:02],160 –> [00:15:03],959
the ice cream for like a year

212
[00:15:03],959 –> [00:15:09],209
it just had they did nothing for me but
now obviously ice cream and I go through

213
[00:15:09],209 –> [00:15:14],579
. it’s where I won’t drink soda for many
many many months at a time just because

214
[00:15:14],579 –> [00:15:21],630
I decide one day I just don’t want it so
i mean that’s that’s great that you were

215
[00:15:21],630 –> [00:15:25],680
able to win yourself down and and you’re
you’re totally right about making better

216
[00:15:25],680 –> [00:15:31],800
choices and then wanting those choices
to pay off you pay dividends for you as

217
[00:15:31],800 –> [00:15:36],240
well as your body so did you run into
any roblox when you started all this

218
[00:15:37],79 –> [00:15:42],29
not so much roadblocks you know I think
you have the perception that the hardest

219
[00:15:42],29 –> [00:15:45],360
thing to make but when you started when
you go to a gym and this is probably

220
[00:15:45],360 –> [00:15:50],220
goes back into my motherly person you go
to gym it when you go to gym as a fat

221
[00:15:50],220 –> [00:15:56],399
person and you’re there you stand out in
your mind no matter what you’re like man

222
[00:15:56],399 –> [00:15:58],800
everybody’s looking at me because
there’s the

223
[00:15:58],800 –> [00:16:02],609
shape people and they’re working out and
you know Here I am don’t know what the

224
[00:16:02],610 –> [00:16:07],709
heck I’m doing and I’m trying to
whatever so the roadblock for me was I

225
[00:16:07],709 –> [00:16:12],510
hated working out in the afternoon when
everybody was there so i tried so I

226
[00:16:12],510 –> [00:16:17],640
decided to get up real early in the
morning and have an early person anyway

227
[00:16:17],640 –> [00:16:22],319
not a 3am early riser to begin with but
i was always an early person so but i

228
[00:16:22],320 –> [00:16:26],820
decided to go to the gym earlier so that
i wouldn’t in quote-unquote embarrass

229
[00:16:26],820 –> [00:16:30],720
myself while I was doing it was working
out and didn’t want to look like the you

230
[00:16:30],720 –> [00:16:32],790
know because when i get off the machine

231
[00:16:32],790 –> [00:16:37],170
even now when i get off the machine is
so sweat and 20 minutes because i am a

232
[00:16:37],170 –> [00:16:41],579
heavy sweater so the fat guys sweating
all over the place looks like he spilled

233
[00:16:41],579 –> [00:16:45],510
a gallon of water all over the place you
know was with someone of of

234
[00:16:45],510 –> [00:16:48],839
embarrassment it when i first started
but you know nobody should be

235
[00:16:48],839 –> [00:16:53],190
embarrassed it’s just it’s one of those
things it’s at least for me out your

236
[00:16:53],190 –> [00:16:57],209
very self aware when your body is not
with the way you want it your very self

237
[00:16:57],209 –> [00:17:02],430
aware of everything around you and you
perceive things that it may not even be

238
[00:17:02],430 –> [00:17:08],159
real but you perceive them so if there
was any roadblock it would be you know

239
[00:17:08],160 –> [00:17:13],740
not being able to fit in for say so has
there been any part of your dream that

240
[00:17:13],740 –> [00:17:19],290
haven’t quite worked out yet or didn’t
quite work out at the time you know I’m

241
[00:17:19],290 –> [00:17:22],709
a very happy guy and I don’t consider
anything that’s never worked out I

242
[00:17:22],709 –> [00:17:25],410
always considered if something doesn’t
go the way of warning is another

243
[00:17:25],410 –> [00:17:29],850
opportunity to do to find something else
and enjoy something else you know I just

244
[00:17:29],850 –> [00:17:34],230
register in boston i went there with the
intent of trying to have a good race and

245
[00:17:34],230 –> [00:17:38],100
and it’s the first time I’ve ever run a
marathon for me for time that I’ve ever

246
[00:17:38],100 –> [00:17:43],80
run over four hours and you know so it
doesn’t is it’s one of those things that

247
[00:17:43],80 –> [00:17:47],159
I could be mad and say that didn’t work
out but you know you learn from it that

248
[00:17:47],160 –> [00:17:51],30
you take the experience you realize how
blessed you were to be there and you you

249
[00:17:51],30 –> [00:17:55],678
realize you know hey just motivates you
to do better and get better and things

250
[00:17:55],679 –> [00:17:59],580
happen you just gotta figure out how to
take lemons make lemonade

251
[00:17:59],580 –> [00:18:02],760
so that’s that’s my attitude i’m very
positive you know it’s gonna be hard to

252
[00:18:02],760 –> [00:18:06],179
get me down you know a roadblock I’m
like water I’ll just find a different

253
[00:18:06],179 –> [00:18:07],50
way around it

254
[00:18:07],50 –> [00:18:11],190
that is beautiful it’s quite easy to see
why so many people love you at the races

255
[00:18:11],190 –> [00:18:12],120
for

256
[00:18:12],120 –> [00:18:16],139
shades i like having fun there’s no
doubt about it man it’s just you know I

257
[00:18:16],140 –> [00:18:21],870
like to have fun and most important i
love seeing other people do things that

258
[00:18:21],870 –> [00:18:26],129
they thought not possible that you know
there’s a lot of people out there think

259
[00:18:26],130 –> [00:18:30],330
you know I can’t do this I can’t do that
we know what that’s that was made to and

260
[00:18:30],330 –> [00:18:34],980
then and if I hadn’t have got my butt
tried it that you never know and there’s

261
[00:18:34],980 –> [00:18:38],880
so many people that I know now that i
see that are out there doing things

262
[00:18:38],880 –> [00:18:41],850
outside their comfort zone and you know
what

263
[00:18:41],850 –> [00:18:45],659
what happens is when they step out on
that uncomfortable field end up liking

264
[00:18:45],660 –> [00:18:50],130
it and then they even feeding it and the
great thing is whether you know it or

265
[00:18:50],130 –> [00:18:53],310
not when you’re doing something like
this you’re inspiring others to do

266
[00:18:53],310 –> [00:18:57],360
things whether you even realize it at
the time or not and then sometimes

267
[00:18:57],360 –> [00:19:02],10
you’ll never know you inspired somebody
to you get you know I get an email and

268
[00:19:02],10 –> [00:19:06],629
your later saying I lost x-number waste
cause you I did this because you I think

269
[00:19:06],630 –> [00:19:11],580
I you just don’t know and i can assure
you that anybody this out there busting

270
[00:19:11],580 –> [00:19:12],960
their butt and change their lives

271
[00:19:12],960 –> [00:19:17],40
there’s other people are taking notice
it and they’re being inspired to buy by

272
[00:19:17],40 –> [00:19:21],360
watching other people do it so you know
my whole goal is to always get back you

273
[00:19:21],360 –> [00:19:25],770
know because it’s it’s not the easiest
thing to do but it’sit’s you know I get

274
[00:19:25],770 –> [00:19:29],520
a lot of reward out of helping others
and watching others achieve their own

275
[00:19:29],520 –> [00:19:32],520
goals and that’s that’s an amazing thing
is so inspiring

276
[00:19:33],270 –> [00:19:38],400
so do you have any dreams for the future

277
[00:19:38],400 –> [00:19:43],830

280
[00:19:54],600 –> [00:19:59],730
that’s a that’s a fast time that’s what
i want to do go wise and you know but on

281
[00:19:59],730 –> [00:20:03],990
the bigger grand scheme of things you
know I want to watch my kids get into

282
[00:20:03],990 –> [00:20:08],820
running I wanted to do it and enjoy it
and I’ve got you saw one girl who’s

283
[00:20:08],820 –> [00:20:10],830
having a pretty good time doing it

284
[00:20:10],830 –> [00:20:15],510
yeah i got a younger one is a little
stubborn with it and I got a wife who

285
[00:20:15],510 –> [00:20:19],620
she ever decides she really wants to do
it can do it she could be pretty darn

286
[00:20:19],620 –> [00:20:24],120
good she she loves and hates running off
the same time so she gets in spurts

287
[00:20:24],120 –> [00:20:25],350
where she is adamant

288
[00:20:25],350 –> [00:20:28],590
the other time she did not but I give
your give her a ton of credit because

289
[00:20:28],590 –> [00:20:32],520
she said she’d never ever run until she
saw one of my metal since my dad died

290
[00:20:32],520 –> [00:20:37],918
she goes well I need to do it so but now
that’s that that’s kind of my my goals

291
[00:20:37],919 –> [00:20:42],690
for say so do you have any last thoughts
for audience look of it yeah if you’re

292
[00:20:42],690 –> [00:20:45],600
sitting here listening to this and
you’re sitting there thinking what can I

293
[00:20:45],600 –> [00:20:49],350
do you know whether it be weight loss
whether it be anything you know what

294
[00:20:49],350 –> [00:20:53],250
unless you actually go out and try it
you’ll never know what you can and you

295
[00:20:53],250 –> [00:20:57],30
cannot do and automatically assume you
can’t do something is automatically

296
[00:20:57],30 –> [00:21:02],820
losing so you know what don’t don’t
don’t be like me for a lot of years

297
[00:21:02],820 –> [00:21:05],789
get off your butt just try and you know
what you may not know how the heck

298
[00:21:05],789 –> [00:21:10],140
you’re gonna get there but if you don’t
start working 40 you never you never be

299
[00:21:10],140 –> [00:21:13],710
