Another amazing story from a runner trying to qualify for the 2008 Olympics.
Paul Stoneham is 37 and he’s been dreaming of being in the Olympics since he was 11. His story will inspire all of us who have been set back by injuries.
He quit his job 3 years to start training for the Olympics. When was the last time you really wanted something so bad you would quit your job? His sacrifices are inspiring.
If all goes well he will be here in Eugene, for the U.S. Olympic Trials.
To qualify he must run must run a 10k in under 28:15 – (that’s why I’m not an Olympian.)
“Stoneham weighs 135 pounds. He has 3 percent body fat. His resting heart rate is 34. He runs 110 to 120 miles a week; usually along the Trinity Trail...He goes through a pair of running shoes about every three weeks.”You can check out his life and training here.
Good Luck Paul - I will be cheering you on at the Olympic trials.
