Guest Post- Meet our 2014 Blogger!

Meet John Thompson, our 2014 guest blogger!


John has been an incredible supporter of the race and of ICT S.O.S. since both began. In fact, he was the very first registered runner for both the 2012 and 2013 races!

If you don't know John, he has an incredible story that he loves to share about his fitness journey. From 400 lbs to leaving me in his dust at the 2012 Prairie Fire Half Marathon where we both ran as "Local Joes"- John has done it ALL with a contagious smile and a generous dose of encouragement for everyone around him!


So if you see John out and about with our team promoting the race, hitting the gym or out for a run, stop him and say Hi! I promise he's one of the nicest people you'll have the pleasure of meeting!


Here's John's story in his own words:
