In a previous posting, I wrote about my friend Matty, a man who lost two hundred some pounds, lost his focus on weight loss, and almost lost his life in an auto accident. At the end of that posting, I said I was going to run a 5K with Matty in Michigan. Well, it seems the man got a little practice in yesterday. It took him nearly an hour and a half, but he completed the Zeeland Zoom 5K Run/Walk last evening.
Society tells super-obese people they are victims and they can’t change themselves. Matty is changing. After his accident the doctors told him he may never walk again. He’s walking. And for a brief period of time Matty thought he’d never return to the active life he led.
But he’s returned….
