Thank you Ben for sharing such an inspiring and personal story! I've always felt like a runner on the inside but have allowed obstacles to get in my way...mostly my own. With a goal to get rid of 40 pounds, a third of your weight loss, there is no reason that I can't. Like you said, "If you want to do it, do it. I have to do it now! Thanks again for opening your story to the rest of us and congrats on all of your accomplishments.

Amazing. I have never wanted to run - not as a kid, not as a teen, not as a young adult, or a middle aged woman. Now that 'I am old' you make me want to run!! Thank you for sharing such an inspiring story. Best wishes to you. Congrats.

BRAVO! This video made me cry. What an amazing story. I'm proud of you and was happy for you that your dad and brother have been there to celebrate and support you. Is there a way I can save this as a favorite so I can watch it when I need inspiration?

Very inspiring. I love running and it does mean more to me than weight loss or burning calories, it makes me happy.

Impressive. Congratulations well deserved.

Not clear what the motivation that you were able to hold on to was -- so many begin a program after a difficulty, but don't stick with it. What kept you going.

Great the family was there for you and with you. Running a marathon and a triathelon with your dad and brother is absolutely terrific.

Impressive!
