Augustus wasn’t always a marathoner. In fact, he only started running in high school, since all his friends were running, too. He also enjoyed the individual nature of the sport, the fact that your success relies completely on you. After he ran cross country and track and field for the University of Alabama, he enlisted in the Army and continued making his name known in the running world. To date, he has made five national teams and won both the Marine Corps Marathon and the Army Ten Miler, among many other accomplishments.

Stay consistent and committed to whatever you do.
