A New Beginning with Jon Tascher
We can start our day over again at any moment. Similarly, we can work towards changing the direction of our life at any moment. For some, change requires only little tweaks. For others though, a complete tearing down and rebuilding is required to save one’s life. Fortunately, in 2015 Jon Tascher got the message loud and clear: something had to change, and now! At the outset of his new beginning, Jon hired a personal trainer and so began his incremental journey from 30-second segments of running, to running 50-kilometer races. Jon’s story exemplifies the power of humility, determination, patience, and focus in reorienting one’s path in life. It is no coincidence that these are the requisite qualities to be an ultra-marathoner. Jon’s story is one of hope, second chances, resiliency, self-acceptance, re-invention, and the power of human connection. This is an incredibly beautiful and intimate look into Jon’s life, and the joy and peace he finds in running, and in his running community. We are so grateful to be able to share this episode with you.
