We love hearing and sharing success stories, and recently received the following from Rogue James Dodds:
I ran quite a bit on my own in order to self train for a marathon in 2008-09. I ended up running pretty slow. My marathon time was 4:56:03. My Cap 10K was 55:20 and then I ran a 10K in Fredricksburg, Tx and ran a 53:09 … that was all in 2009 … AND I weighed 215lbs …
I decided to run with Rogue beginning in Oct. of 2009. My marathon time was lowered to 4:41:03 … that will improve this year.
BUT my 10Ks were
Wildflower 10K in Fredricksburg, TX: 45:43
and I weigh about 189 now …
Running with Rogue ended up making we way faster and even helped shed a few lbs. I always tell my friends that “I must share my accomplishments with Rogue” because that is where I found that motivation and kick to really start making changes.
If you know or happen to meet James, congratulate him – that is both an amazing 10K drop and a great weight drop. We can’t wait to see what he does with that marathon time this year!
If you have a story, thought or race report you’d like to share, feel free to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for (almost certain) publication. Rogue wouldn’t be Rogue without our members, and we want everyone to hear from you!
