Apr 11, 2018

Robert Gonzalez lives in San Antonio, in a nurse, and is a proud father. We talk with Robert about:

  • How he started running to lose weight
  • That he did his first half marathon in El Paso, TX since he wanted to do something to challenge himself, and that it was a suffer fest
  • The lessons he has learned through running, including respecting the distance and challenge of any race, and that you get what you put in
  • Why he runs, which is to show his sister who recently lost her battle with cancer, that anything is possible
  • The significance behind cutting his hair before every race
  • His quest to qualify for and to run the Boston Marathon for his sister
  • Setting goals and doing things that scare you
  • Parenthood and setting a good example for our children, including stroller running
  • How running influences and impacts his career as a nurse
  • 5K versus the marathon and ultramarathons
