I’ve just finished reading “Finding Ultra”, the story of how a 40 year old guy, Rich Roll, transformed from couch potato to Ultraman.
The night before he turned 40, Rich Roll had what he calls a “moment of clarity.” Overweight and out of shape, Roll had to stop to catch his breath while walking up the stairs. Roll, now a father of four, feared he was close to a heart attack. That low point prompted the entertainment attorney and former college swimmer to lose weight and get healthy. Roll not only followed through on his promise to himself and his family, he transformed his body and his life.
He adopted a vegan or plant-based diet and six months later, with almost no experience, entered the extreme endurance event known as Ultraman.
This guy is going all the way. After reading this inspirational story, you might, just like me, start fantasizing of entering a triathlon some day. And although I personally found his vegan diet a bit extreme, I certainly will try to include some of his tips into my own diet.
