Will Carlson is a person who went from a high school, high energy super jock into the Pillsbury Dough Boy in 25 years. This transition wasn't a pretty one! Having no energy and being 35 lbs. overweight something had to be done.
The suggestion came from his family that he needed to lose weight! While coaching a little league baseball game there was a local 5K race going by. Some folks were walking and some were running as they went by. One of the coaches pointed out, "If I couldn't run the whole race I wouldn't of entered."
Wow a challenge was born, run a 5K race all the way! How far is a 5K race anyway? Well day one as he set out the door (remembering his high school running days) there was a humbling experience coming. About a half mile in he couldn't breath and his body didn't like his new plan of running.
Will decided to do his training much more different from then on and increased his distance one or two trees at a time. After two months he finished the 5K and in doing so the weight started coming down. Will increased his running challenge to a 10K and then a half marathon, then finally a full marathon!
After now completing 74 marathons and doing several training programs Will want others to be able to avoid his mistakes in training. Some of the marathons were Chicago, L.A., Boston, New York, Marine Corp., Tucson, Houston, and Austin many times.
Now instead of being the Pillsbury Dough Boy Will trains beginner to marathon runners. Since 2005 Will has had the privilege to train over 2100 runners.
Everybody has the right to regain the energy and youthful feeling they once had. Will’s seminars and training will show folks a one, two, three, I'm running approach to life.
