Runtastic Success Story: Less Work, More Motivation
I’m 30 years old, married, father of two little girls and work as a technical project manager for a Swiss software company.
I started running about 10 years ago. Back then, I weighed 276 lbs (125 kg) and eventually lost 132 lbs (60 kg) within 9 months. But when I became a father, 4 years ago, I stopped doing sports, began to smoke and turned into a real couch potato. The result: +88 lbs (+40 kg). Then, 6 months ago, I stopped smoking completely and started working out and running instead. This was also the moment when I first downloaded the Runtastic app and immediately I was very motivated by all its functionalities. Tracking my performance suddenly became so easy! No more handwriting or filling out excel spreadsheets.
My current status: I lost almost 30 lbs (13 kg) since I started training with Runtastic and I now weigh 192 lbs (87.3 kg). My average pace is about 5 min/km.
My goals: I want to lose another 30 lbs & finish a half marathon by fall.
I even have my goals for 2015 planned out: I want to finally achieve my ideal weight & finish a marathon!
I know Runtastic will support me on my way there 🙂
I hope you enjoyed reading my Runtastic Success Story!
