Math Teacher Conquers Sleep Apnea and Becomes Marathon Runner

John Young: Small in stature but big in heart

John Young is definitely someone to look up to because he was able to overcome his own limits and crush his goals. Just imagine, he was over 200 pounds and was dangerously overweight for someone of his height. He developed sleep apnea which affected his quality of life and daily activities. He didn't allow his condition stop him from making changes to his overall lifestyle.

Young was once a regular math teacher who slept in the classroom and now he now radiates energy and confidence. He also can blow away many marathoners. His personal record is 5 hours and 50 minutes to complete 26.2 miles!
