We interviewed Roger Wright for this episode of TalkJogRun. Roger lost 113 pounds in 10 months time. He is known for his inspiring video on YouTube that shows his journey to the Boston Marathon.

Roger decided to lose weight, run a marathon, and raise money for cystic fibrosis. He not only completed the Boston Marathon, but many more marathons since that time. He currently runs for the Boomer Esiason Foundation, to raise money for cystic fibrosis.

Roger’s story is extremely inspiring. In this podcast, he shares his journey with us and all the ups and downs that came with it.
