“It’s an amazing experience, crossing that finish line for the first time. Knowing that you invested in yourself and you lost weight and you changed and you grew and you became a different person and you see life different than you did before.” – Heather Shourds
Talk about an amazing story… Heather certainly has one.
Growing up in rural Georgia, she overcame the psychological trauma that comes with divorce and being told she wouldn’t amount to anything in a big way.
But before she did, her low self esteem and poor eating habits took her up to 100 pounds overweight.
Luckily, a wake up call from a doctor got her moving and ultimately training in order to regain her lost athleticism and body… and she never looked back.
She dropped the weight and with some encouragement from her trainer signed up for a triathlon with all the fears you’d expect from someone who’d never done one.
But she was getting progressively better the more she trained… to the point where she represented Team USA as an amateur in Australia!
Quite the turnaround… hear the full story today.
