I was introduced to Ben Davis via a very old copy of Runners’ World that was clinging around the gym in my building. You can read Ben’s entire story here, or if you have a shorter attention span you can watch his story here:
The fact of the matter is Ben started something on a dare with himself and it became his passion. Ben epitomizes what it means to change your life, and he did it one step at a time. “If you want to do something, all you have to do is do it,” he said. If you want to make a change, all you have to do is start.
And at a time of year when everyone seems to be starting and committing and beginning again, it’s good to remember that really, a start is all it takes. Everything after that is a matter of starting again, each day, and being thankful for the opportunity to give it another shot.
