Special Guest - Meb Keflezighi
Meet one of the most transcendent athletes in history, an athlete widely acclaimed as one of the greatest runners of our time in an intimate, small-town setting.
Although he might not be chasing Olympic medals these days, Meb Keflezighi stays connected to the world of running and maintains an unwavering commitment to helping others go the distance in their own lives — physically, professionally, personally and spiritually. Every day, he inspires individuals of all ages and athletic abilities to achieve their own personal best.
A highly sought-after motivational speaker, author, and founder of the MEB Foundation to promote youth health, education, and fitness, Meb's story has and continues to inspire millions from around the world.
The only athlete in history to win the New York Marathon, the Boston Marathon, and an Olympic Medal, Meb hadn't even heard of the Olympics until he was a teenager.
A refugee from war-torn East Africa (and now a proud and patriotic American), Meb's resilience, determination, and faith led him to prevail following some of life's most challenging and heart-breaking circumstances. Meb is a graduate of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and his records include four NCAA championships, 23 National Championships, and a place on four United States Olympic teams.
By serving as a role model and source of inspiration, audiences worldwide are learning to Run to Overcome, no matter what the odds or challenges they face in their everyday lives. In Meb's most recent book, 26 Marathons, the four-time Olympic marathoner shares his lessons on life, family, faith, and running through a reflection on each of the 26 marathons he's run in his storied career.
