Check out this inspirational story of Heather Wajer, a triathlete from Northern California. In 2007, Heather found herself over 315 pounds after losing her mom to ALS and using food to cope. Heather started making small changes that led to big changes. She completely transformed her life by losing over half her body weight (157 lbs), giving up bad habits and becoming an Ironman.
Now Heather has a new dream, to compete in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. She’s a finalist in the Kona Inspired contest. The Ironman folks are giving away a handful of slots to inspirational athletes who embody the mantra “Anything is Possible”.
