Next up we had on Director Linda Burns and Andrew "Drew" Johnston, star of the new documentary chronicling Drew’s rise from a cancer diagnosis to him competing in an Ironman Triathlon in
This is a great story - Drew is an elite athlete. He stared out as a competitive pro cyclist, but after a series of accidents and concussions, he was forced to put down his bike.
Drew quickly changed gears and found success and a new career as a triathlete. But 2004 brought devastating news for his family, his friends and his future. Drew was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) and his body literally broke down.
But two years later, after taking an oral chemo called Gleevac, and continuing his commitment to a healthy organic lifestyle, rigorous targeted exercise and an extremely positive mental attitude, Drew is in molecular remission.
Today, Drew competes at triathlons and Ironman events throughout the country with remarkable results. Drew's life story serves as an inspiration to others, to strive to be your best in every aspect of life and to never give up your dreams, no matter how distant they may seem.

Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by over 3 dozen
people who are interested in what he eats each day. Who would have
thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's eating exploits on
Twitter. Food journals are great ways to lose weight and the Fat Guy is
always trying anything in order to lose those last 20 pounds. So take a peek
into his food diary. You never know what he'll write. Somehow he can stay
compliant to writing on Twitter but he can't fit in exercise each day. That's
right, moments after he eats something the Fat Guy Twitters about it and you
can follow him so that one day if you try real hard you too can look like the
Fat Guy. Please go to www.twitter.com/fatguy
