In mid 2012 Gary Wilmot decided me needed to make changes. It started with a critical mission to save his life through embracing a healthy lifestyle. Gary was a morbidly obese smoker, drinker, non-exerciser who was a ticking time bomb and his life was on the line.
By early 2015 Gary (aka No More Mr Fat Guy) lost more than 30kg through healthy eating and going from walking around the block to completing the London Marathon. in 18 months.
Today Gary is running across Australia in a journey he calls Hearts Across Australia. From Perth in Western Australia, through South Australia, down into Victoria, up through ACT and New South Wales and into Brisbane in the name of healthy hearts for healthy lives!
In this episode of The Partnerunning Show we catch up with Gary as he runs along the highway just past Dimboola in Victoria.
You can follow Gary's journey, offer messages of support and/or donate via the Hearts Across Australia Website and Facebook Pages.
