Emotional: SURPRISING my blind friend Mark with a NEW TREADMILL (his broke).

I’m so proud to be an Ambassador to NoblePro (the company behind the high spec treadmills and the one that I train on, the EliteE8i). Following that announcement, on Facebook, I had a message from Guide Runner, Paul Davidson asking if I could help his friend Mark Ellis, a blind runner, to source a treadmill. His had broken over 6 months previous; he was unable to run outside without a guide and had relied on his treadmill to exercise.
Living alone, Mark’s quality of life was at a low. Running was his lifeline and I think we can all relate to that.
He is now able to run! 🙂 This was an emotional day!

UPDATE: Mark just got engaged! Check out his announcement:
