Thanks Ben- shed more than a few tears at this amazing video and story!! Wow- There is nothing "ordinary" about you. Well done !!
Wow! what an amazing inspiration to us all. Well done .
Thanks Ben! You went beyond bringing tears ,I cried . I needed motivation and it's hard to have it sometimes. Thant you I know it wasn't a easy journey. Good luck
Way to go Ben! You are truly inspirational. Thanks for sharing!
Great article. I really hate running, but know it has the potential to help. My feet and knees hurt when I do it, but I'm thinking about getting a new pair of shoes and trying it again as I always sweat better and lose weight better when I do it. Currently back up to 316...
WOW, I love your story! You totally inspired me. So proud of you!!
Thanks, Ben. I have a physical disability and sometimes get discouraged. Today I wanted to skip the gym but this reminded me that I work out in order to do all the other things that make life worth it. Journey, Hope and Love.
