Florida bro Chris Hasty was motivated in not dying in the next 5-10 years, so he decided to drop more than 260 lbs, down from nearly 500 lbs, in anticipation of running his first full Disney Marathon.
Now, you can find him at one of two places, the gym or running the hills of Clermont. He didn’t stop at a certain number and has kept the journey going. His wife also launched @morbid2marathon on Instagram, so you can track his progress, but was initially started in keeping him accountable.
Hasty was a borderline diabetic with high blood pressure before opting to run in various 5K, 10K and half-marathons with coworkers at South Lake Hospital. Now, he’s up to full marathons and, in January of 2020, will partake in the four-day slate of races as part of Run Disney, which culminates with a full marathon and a total of 48.6 miles.
Hasty currently has a GoFundMe campaign going in hopes of having skin removal surgery, because the loose skin is painful when he runs. You can donate to the cause: HERE.
