300 Pounds And Running

In 2012, Martinus worked long hours on his feet selling suits. One day he walked into work and felt a sharp pain in his hip. He could hardly put weight on it.

He went to multiple doctors searching for an answer to his pain.

Finally, a doctor said he knew why Martinus was hurting.

“And I’m like, You know why? Like, is it because of a previous football injury? Because I played football in high school in college. What is it? He’s like, you’re fat. And I’m like, What?”

An argument ensued.

“I’m like, I’m gonna run a marathon. And he laughs. He’s like, you know, that’s the most dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life. And if you run a marathon, you’re gonna die.

This lit a fire under Martinus, and he decided on the drive home that he was going to run a marathon…that very day!

Soon he found himself falling off the treadmill for setting the speed too fast.

But he got back up.

And for the next 18 weeks, Martinus got on that treadmill until he could RUN a 5K!

And he has been running ever since.
