Dave came late to running at age 52. After his Doctor brought to his attention that he thought he wouldn’t live very long, Dave began to address diet and lifestyle changes resulting in a weight loss of 110lbs. Dave began running with the assistance of Coach Jen from Austin Fit. He began training for the Cap 10K and after that joined the 1/2 marathon program. Dave began coaching a short time later. The Austin Fit program has made a difference in my life and I so appreciate that running is for fun and attitude embodied by this program.
