The following are engaging excerpts from the book:
“The real Jeffrey wasn’t an obese, compulsive overeater, unable to control his appetite. The real Jeffrey was a strong, healthy man crossing a finish line, feeling like ‘the king of the world.’ In late 1994 Jeffrey began to walk. ‘I couldn’t afford a health club, but I could afford shoes and a rain suit.’ He walked twice a day for over a year. Then he began to jog. He found support in his family ‘for the things I was going to do with my life.’ He bought running books and subscribed to running magazines. He found a coach, learned how to stretch correctly and began to use a heart rate monitor. He changed his eating habits. By the time his grandchild was born, he had lost his first one hundred pounds. Months passed, the pounds disappeared, and the finish line was in sight.” – Jeffrey Wanchena, Isanti, MN
“Rick lived hard, drank hard and partied hard until he was thirty-five years old. He was ‘a mess,’ both physically and psychologically. The years of abuse had taken their toll; he was an addict and an alcoholic, unhealthy, out-of-shape, overweight and lacking any purpose in his life. Seeing the bottom rapidly approaching, his future promised to be both bleak and short. It was a frightening scenario. ... Rick began to run while camping alone in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The experience was totally exhilarating and freeing, so much so that he ran every day on the trip. When he returned from his vacation he continued to run and in 1994, after only one year of training, he ran his first marathon. His addictions to alcohol and drugs now an addiction to running, Rick had become the new man he had dreamed of. ... Rick says that he has lived two lifestyles in one lifetime, one ended and another started when he was thirty-five. Despite the cancer, which will never go into complete remis! sion unless he has a bone marrow transplant, he believes he’s ‘healthier now than I’ve ever been in my life.’” – Rick Nawrocki, Torrance, CA
