Zachary Rieger, lost 24 kilograms per year, and dried himself 8 weeks before the sports body:
“Find yourself a community that will support and amuse you.”
“Surround yourself with nice people. I was lucky, because in my life there was a girl (now she is my wife), who supported me in my endeavors. We went in for sports together, she cheered me up during the races. My parents were also happy about my progress and were rooting for me when I ran my first marathon. All my best friends supported me, one of them even with me just a month prepared for a marathon race.
Support for others can not be underestimated. It is so effective that it can even inspire you to participate in the marathon. “
