Weekend Warrior: Scott Stader ~ runner

Runner, 46, Consultant with AT&T, President & Founder of RUN365, husband & father

We are a running family. My wife, Jana, and I run races almost every weekend. Ryan has run at least one 5K a month for over two and a half years now.

I finished Bear Lake Marathon, which was three consecutive days of racing: Day 1 – Marathon in Idaho, Day 2 – Marathon in Wyoming (2nd in my age group), and Day 3 – Half Marathon in Utah.

I have a running streak of at least one mile every day for five and a half years. I wanted to share my love for running with others so I started my running group, RUN365, six years ago. Through the success of this community, we started a kids club, Kids RUN365, that has just begun its fourth year and has over 250 kids involved on a weekly basis.

I also am working on running a full marathon in each state. I just finished states 40 and 41. I’ve run 79 full and/or ultramarathons and 102 half marathons so far.

The 2013 Boston Marathon was my second year running that race and the most unforgettable experience.

To me, running is all about relationships. I feel incredibly blessed to share miles with my wife, daughters, friends, family, and co-workers. Seeing their success and joy in this sport/community keeps me going.

I lost 70 pounds when I started running 13 years ago and have kept most of it off. The Lord used running to help change my life and give me a firm direction.

Casa Mexicana is my favorite restaurant in town. If you run every day, you should eat Mexican every day too!
