Remember the group of SparkPeople members who ran the Ragnar Relay together as a part of the documentary From Fat to Finish Line? Last year we shared their story with you after they appeared on the Today show.

Now that same group of runners, who were chosen to participate in the documentary based on their mutual interest in running and 50+ pound weight loss, is featured in the April issue of Runner's World.

Katie (SLIMKATIE) has a three-page spread in the magazine, while Jennifer (JERSEYGIRLJEN), John (RUNNER12COM) and Allison (LYSSAYN) each has a full-page feature. Carly (CARLYOLEO41), Linda (LINDAK1971), Meredith (merdi1974) and Lealah (JUSTLEALAH) were also quoted in the magazine. 

In addition to sharing these runners' personal success stories, the magazine offers tips to help you apply their experiences to your own workouts. We don't want to give anything away, so be sure to pick up a copy of the magazine to read their secrets to success.

Congrats to this ambitious group of runners!

    So cool to spot this! Just joined Spark People, and Jen (Jerseygirljen) is my twin sister!! Not always easy being the "fat" twin since she lost all the weight, but always very proud of her, only 1 month into my journey & down 15 lbs... She and the team are amazing! - 8/6/2014   8:58:09 PM
