Among all the amazing testimonies we heard this past season, one young woman stood out as an inspiration to us all. After the first few weeks of training, Ashley came to the end of her rope. Her weight caused her to doubt her ability to run. Ashely’s grandfather realized she needed some extra motivation and so he offered her a deal; If she crossed the finish line, he would give her $500! Needless to say, Ashley finished the 14-week training program and crossed the finish line on May 4th, injury free and feeling great about her weight-loss through the program. As a result of this great accomplishment, Ashley feels empowered and inspired to change. Her confidence level is visibly higher. Click on the video above to see her post-race glow.
