To think that almost 8 years ago this young man would barely run 2 laps around the gym for a PE warm up because he didn't understand his body's reactions to exercise. Today he finished the Portland Shamrock 5k Run (his 4th 5k in the last year)! Super proud of you and all of your fitness achievements Ben!
