I have been an avid distance runner since 2013 at the age of 48. I am a father of two daughters. I live with epilepsy since the age of five. I am an advocate for the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida in the Fort Lauderdale area. It is my passion to combine running with fundraising for charity. I plan on organizing a distance race to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation.
What is the inspiration behind your book?
The inspiration behind "Running to a New Beginning" is my personal life and how I was able to turn a medical condition into a life changing sporting activity. I was not aware of my potential until my experiences over the last few years. I believe I am a different person. One who has a positive outlook on life, health and committing to improving mental and physical well being.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in September of 2013. I was 46 years old.
A journey of coping with epilepsy from childhood through adulthood and the experience of uncontrolled seizures to life-changing surgery. You will find yourself captured by the portrayal of amazing resiliency of the human spirit in adapting to the burden of a chronic medical condition. Experience how focus and drive can be used to accomplish your personal goals. Run John Run! You will be inspired!!
