At one time Stephen Lee weighed 225 pounds, was a smoker and had dangerously high blood pressure. After a blood pressure incident he decided to take control of his health and started hitting the gym. Soon Stephen became bored with gym life and a friend talked him into running a 5K in late 2013. That is all it took and he has never looked back. Since then he has completed 5 halfs, 4 fulls, one 50K and one 50 Miler along with many 5, 10, and 15K races both road and trail.
Stephen is looking forward to pushing himself even farther both in distance and in the difficulty of the races he does. If you tell him that this running thing has gone to his head he will take that as a compliment.
All kidding aside, besides running Stephen has two teenage sons that he has been raising by himself and is very proud that even though they are teenagers, they still enjoy spending time together.
