Christopher Roberts has been running since 2010.  In his early 30’s he started running merely as a way to loss weight and better his health.  After dropping, as of 2011, over seventy pounds, it has become a way of life.  The runs became a metaphor for that life.  The next stage of his journey is to share his story.  Hoping to help other amateur runners, he keeps telling it.
