Shoreline Rotary to hear from "The Running Man" on Wednesday

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Join Shoreline Rotary on Wednesday morning, August 28, 2019 at the Shoreline Community College PUB. The meeting starts at 7am with breakfast and camaraderie; the formal program starts at 7:30am.

If you live on Planet Earth, and especially if you live in Shoreline, you may have heard of Lamont Thomas, also known as “The Running Man.”

You may have seen him running, or walking, up and down Richmond Beach Road, or other streets in the neighborhood.

He has written a book called “The Running Miracle,” in which he tells his poignant and inspirational story of overcoming a devastating childhood accident. In a 2017 interview with Seattle Magazine, he recounts his challenging journey and mentions one of his favorite runs: “I like Richmond Beach,” he says of his favorite running spot. “It’s like a present afterwards. You go down to the beach, you look at it for a second, and you’re like, ‘I made it,’ and then you run back.”

According to the magazine article, Lamont Thomas “wears many hats: mentor, comedian, businessman, writer, runner. But as someone who was once told he’d never walk again, it’s the last one that has Thomas beaming with pride.”

Lamont Thomas is an inspirational speaker you won’t soon forget. Bring family and friends to hear Lamont Thomas.
