From Fat To Finish Line The Documentary

From Fat To Finish Line the documentary is a movie that is being put together by a friend of mine and I wanted to share a bit of it with you.
My friend Jen Roe has been blogging about her up and down journey from being overweight to half marathon runner / marathon runner and (so she vows) eventual triathalon competitor. She's someone who transformed her life the good old-fashioned way, through healthy eating and exercise. No fad diets, nothing crazy just learning and continuing to learn about good nutrition and hitting the pavement. Ultimately, her persistence has paid off -  she's lost 100 pounds and have kept the weight off since December 2010.
Now she's embarking on a whole new journey. She's teamed up with 12 other people who've each lost 100 pounds or more, like her and they are running the 200-mile Ragnar Race in January 2013. Because they all have such incredible weight loss stories and because her mission is to motivate others to get moving, she's decided to make a documentary film about the entire journey called, From Fat To Finish Line.  The first part of the film will highlight what it took for these 12 individuals to get the weight off and the second part will document the actual nitty-gritty of the race.
Jen Small, fellow Tri blogger of Miles, Muscles and Mommyhood (whom I just met and did the REV3 70.3 with) is also one of the documentary subjects. As is Ada Wong (who I worked with at Marathon Makeover two years ago), Season 10 Biggest Loser runner-up who has done a few 70.3 Ironman competitions and is training for a full.
Jen is fundraising to help bring this project to light and she's struggling to get to her goal. If you want to watch the trailer and possibly support the film you can check it out here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/AngelaLee/from-fat-to-finish-line

Take a look at these pictures and you can see how far both Jen's have come.  What a great inspiration these two are to anybody but especially those that believe that they can't do it, and by it I mean lose weight and keep it off.
Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for donating.

About the Author:

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
