Lamont Thomas "The Running Man" featured in Seattle Magazine story

Friday, July 21, 2017

The Running Miracle is available at Third Place Books.
Shoreline's Running Man, Lj Thomas, was recently featured in the Seattle Magazine (How a Crippled Boy Became Shoreline's Inspirational 'Running Man')

It has been a summer of ups and down for Lj.

His autobiography was published in June. (see our previous story). 

A month ago, he tripped over a curb on his daily run, fell, and fractured his femur. It required surgery and a titanium plate. He has been unable to work and was in a wheelchair until just two weeks ago. 

He will not be able to go back to work for a couple of months. However, the bone is healing properly, something that Lj doesn't take for granted.

His book is for sale online and Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park has copies for sale. He is grateful that people are donating to his GoFundMe page to help keep him afloat financially until he is able to go back to work.

While not running, he is starting to get around. He is scheduled for an author event at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park at 7pm on September 6.
