Among the multitude of benefits, running can be a great way to detoxify the body and achieve a clearer mindset the natural way.
David Palmer made one of the most admirable resolutions to bring about his biggest transformation.
By using the power of running, he gained control of his health and well being.
Here is David’s inspiring journey.
“I’m over the moon to have won and be featured in your blog.
My journey really began on New Year’s Day 2019. I used to be an alcoholic/drug addict, and the night before I had drank 22-26 beers (I’m a bit hazy on exact numbers.) Waking up on New Year’s Day, I decided I’d have a break from drinking to try and lose some weight. I was roughly 120kg.
The next day I started walking, and kept it up every day until I saw the advertisement for the Mother’s Day classic in Geelong. It was only 2 weeks away. I started slow jogging/walking and entered the 4km fun run, with the aim of running the whole way.
Achieving this, gave me the motivation to stay sober, and I have been ever since. Since then I’ve been competing in fun runs all over Melbourne.
Last New Year’s Eve (my 1 year anniversary of being sober,) I came first in the 5km fun run at the You Yangs Running Festival.
This year has been crazy so to keep enjoying races, I’ve been doing virtual events with Heart & Soles, Runovation and the Geelong Masters Athletics.”
