Today I’m one of the most powerful episodes in the show’s history with a man named Gene, who has overcome much bigger challenges than 26.2 miles.

In his own words, Gene came into running later in life, and he definitely enjoys it.

Like many folks that have been on the show, Gene’s favorite distance to race is 13.1. One of his goals is to always be half marathon fit, which is a good place to be. Read more
