Brian Adkins lost an astonishing 60 lbs. while training to run the Chicago Marathon for the Miles for Magic team. “Losing 60 lbs. changed my life. I was settling and could do a lot more in life,” said Adkins. “I didn’t feel good about myself. I’m 44 years old and I felt like, I’m middle-aged, it’s over. I didn’t know how I could still grow and improve.”
Adkins draws inspiration from Open Heart Magic’s mission. “They bring joy to kids. Caring. It’s hard enough to be a kid these days, let alone a sick kid in a hospital. Open Heart Magic comes in and makes kids’ lives better.”Click here for the full interview including before and after pictures, what he did and why he ran for the team!
