We are exciting to announce that our @sparklysoulinc Coach of the Month for May 2014 is…
John Bingham (@jjbingham) http://www.johnbingham.com
John Bingham is an author,columnist, and comic, and the spokesperson for the slow-running movement. Known to his flock as “The Penguin” for his waddling pace Bingham has, for two decades, encouraged runners of all shapes, sizes, and speeds to follow his example and change their lives for the better by taking up the sport.
His popular column The Penguin Chronicles ran for 14 years in “Runner’s World” magazine and now appears in “Competitor” magazine. Bingham has written several books including “An Accidental Athlete“, a memoir that tells for the first time the story of how Bingham took up running at the age of 43 to become the unlikely icon of today’s running boom.
Bingham is spokesman for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program and voice of the Rock’n’Roll marathon series. We love TNT and Rock ‘n’ Roll races! We love getting to see John interview so many people on the stage at Rock ‘n’ Roll races and getting to see him at every race! He is an inspiration to meet and awesome to everyone who crosses his path! We are big fans of John and we know you will be too (if you aren’t already!)
