Have you heard about Chris Davis? Not too long ago he was 700lbs. He measured the distance he could walk in feet, and had to plan his route from car to office carefully. He went to the doctor to see about gastric bypass surgery and was told he was TOO HEAVY. Chris motivated himself, lost 100 pounds, had the bypass surgery and has not stopped pushing himself since.
Today finds him in Pittsfield Vermont, home of the Spartan Race "Spartan HQ," where he is training with Joe De Sena for next week's Spartan Ultra Beast. It's a 26+ mile obstacle course on the face of Killington Mountain. We've been documenting his progress in weekly videos for the last 20 weeks, and we can't wait to see him take on the Ultra Beast. Go get it Chris! We're rooting for you.
You can follow Chris on Facebook at the Project Chris Davis page.
On March 27th I was envious of the "pause" to reassess and learn I kept hearing about. I was fortunate enough to still be working, so I committed to a more active blog. This is my chance to think out loud.
