John Colvard

From: Leavenworth, WA

What I do for a living: Independent claims adjuster and property damages consultant.

Why I choose to run Boston with Herren Project:
In memory of my sister, Linda.

What I do for fun (besides running and helping others!):
Other fitness activities including triathlons and cross-country skiing in the winter including biathlon racing.

What I’m most proud of:
After reaching 300 pounds about 20 years ago, I got back to my love and enjoyment of exercise and eventually lost enough weight to start running again. I have participated in up to 50 events a year so with the associated training, I have maintained a 110+ pound weight loss. During this journey of weight maintenance, I have completed 15 Ironmans culminating with Kona in 2018, and finished marathons in 41 states so far.
