I know this isn’t really about running, but it’s a really neat story. Ron Cooper, who lives in Lawton, has covered 835 miles along the Trail of Tears. He’ll finish up today in Tahlequah. Cooper said this:
I’ve been an overweight couch potato all my life.
His story is so interesting to me because it’s a reminder that we really can do anything. (That sounds cheesy, doesn’t it? But it’s true.) He went from sedentary to hiking 835 miles across the country. It makes me feel like running the half marathon is even more possible for me. I’ve been preparing and I can do it. It’s just a matter of trying – of getting out on the trail.
