Heaviest Marathon Finisher

Kelly Gneiting holds the Guinness world record for the heaviest Person to Complete a Marathon. The 40 year old, former sumo wrestling champion finished 2011 L.A marathon in a time of 9 hours, 48 minutes and 52 seconds.

Kelly showed everyone how tough it is to finish a 26 mile marathon.

  • He weighed 400P at the start and weighed 396.2 pounds after the marathon.
  • Gneiting jogged the first eight miles and walked the final 18, saying afterward that he lost track of where he was after mile 10 because he felt delirious.

Kelly, A hard days’ work!

Never Say Die Spirit

“I was really struggling in the last five miles,” he said, “but I said to myself, ‘If I have to crawl, I will.'”

THAT’S THE SPIRIT!!

Sanya Richards Training Food Diet

According to legend, when Sanya Richards was 16 years old in Junior high school she told her father or also doubles up as her coach “I don’t like the feeling of losing, and I’m willing to do whatever you say it would take for me to be the best,”

Her father immediately designed a core program that featured a thousand crunches daily.

Running Quote : Masters Inspiration

A good reason why running is not just for the young.

As Mexico City Games decathlon champion Bill Toomey once said in Track & Field News: “Competition’s too much fun to be left to the kids.”

If you stopped engaging in sports you must have forgotten the last time you had fun. Maybe you should join a running club and remind yourself how fun life is.
