Lukas Verzbicas is one of five U.S. high school runners in history to run a sub 4:00 minute mile. Out of high school he became a professional triathlete and won his first two races before breaking his back in a bike crash in July of 2012. This year has been all about recovery. Next up is Richard Muscio’s 5 miler on Thanksgiving morning November 28th in Oceanside. Lukas and Richard came in studio and the conversation was about Lukas’ career, his Olympic goals, and the upcoming race.
Marko Cheseto grew up in Kenya and ended up running at the University of Alaska at Anchorage. He had no idea what snow looked like or where it came from before arriving there. He was a 29 minute 10K guy who ended up losing both legs below the knee. He is back running 39 minutes for 10K and 65 seconds for 400 meters. His goal now is to get the Paralympic Games in Rio in 2016. He came in studio with Huddle and me to share his unbelievable story.
