Vic Morales is from Iowa and tells the story of how he knew he was meant to run since the 7th grade. For about 30 years Vic has made an effort to not only keep running fun but how it also helped him in a weight loss effort, losing 45 pounds in order to get back to a healthy weight. Vic tells the story of an infection that spread within his body, sidelining him from running for months. He shares details from this unique experience as well as his recovery efforts. We talk with Vic about the strength of the human spirit and he reminds us that it’s ok to ask for help. He also challenges runners of all abilities to know their strengths and weaknesses, to learn from their failures, and to take pride in the fact that they are a runner.
