Everyone has their own reasons for running. Over the course of 13 weeks, Dick’s Sporting Goods is posting inspirational videos of people whose lives were changed by the power of running.
Watch the story of 29-year-old Steve Bell who was born with cystic fibrosis. Despite all the treatment he needs — including having to strap on a vest every morning for up to an hour and a half to break up the mucus in his lungs — Bell runs while he is still able to. He’s probably able to beat you in a race since he’s completed six marathons so far!
Watch his story here:
When Sally lost her husband to cancer, her friend Lisa encouraged her to start running. It has been a form of therapy and strength in her time of loss.
Grab a tissue box and watch their story:
Asmeret Berhe straps on her sneakers and goes for a run in her Brooklyn neighborhood every day at 3:30 a.m. She runs for her family. Go to DSG.com/RunFor to see her story and the rest of the the weekly Web series as they are posted. You can even purchase gear that each runner wears during their training.
