"Progress comes from practicing patience, persistence, and perseverance, and success comes from being completely dedicated to your dreams."
Powerful words from an inspiring, humble athlete, motivational speaker, coach, entrepreneur and philanthropist, Chad Weller.
As a young model in Europe, Chad decided to lace up his running shoes as a way to discover the various cities he was working in. But this casual “Adventure Running” soon transitioned to serious running and eventually a career as a Top Ranked Pro Ultramarathoner and Running Coach.
With over 221 races under his belt, 14 years of coaching experience and 20 years as a vegan, Chad sits down with us to speak about what he does to plan and prepare in order to tackle 50 and 100 mile endurance races. He talks about nutrition, the importance of form and the mental aspect of long distance running and his passion for running clearly permeates throughout the podcast. As the owner of R U Running he trains runners to not only become better, more efficient runners, but also to achieve what they may think is impossible.
And even greater than his running accomplishments and success is his passion for giving back and helping others. He dedicates himself to empowering people to succeed in all aspects of their lives. As an Ambassador of Prevent Child Abuse America, an organization dedicated to preventing the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children, Chad inspires youth to overcome obstacles in their lives through education, passion, health and fitness. And Chad also dedicates himself to giving shoes to youth so they may experience the exhilaration of success through hard work.
This was our first time meeting Chad and we were happy that he could share his story with us and all of you.
