“My friend, Jordan, actually commented my Instagram when I announced I wasn’t running the marathon. He said, ‘The comeback is greater than the setback.’ It really became a mantra for me for that whole year. My mantra when I was in the training was ‘Come back stronger’ and I did. It wasn’t just running. It was life.”
Zac Price joins the Runners of NYC Podcast to share his story of how he found running late in his life and has “become a better person mentally and physically” as a result. We dive into how the loss of a friend got him into racing and the philanthropic aspect of running. How a toxic relationship led him to discover the Project Moonshot and training for the New York City Marathon. However, Zac also shares how injuries prevented him from making that first marathon happen but still managed to prove that the comeback is greater than the setback.
