Hello guys! How are you? I hope you’re well! Today I would like to talk to you about somebody that I consider as a legend in the sector of athletics but above all in the sector of life: Sir Dimtirs Chronis. These last months our everyday lives have changed. This year we learnt how precious is our life and how to protect it. All we want is, after all, a thought and a decision away. Every obstacle is overcome, every moment is the right one to take the next step, the limitations are often creations of our mind. And that is all that a true story teaches us – a story that proves that life is ahead. I’m refering to the strory of Dimitris Chronis who was a fanatical smoker until he was 47 years old. After a lot of problems that he had because of the cigarette, he had to go to the hospital. There a doctor advised him to quit smoking, and that’s exactly what he did. And exept of that he decided to go to the gym and there he realized the real meaning of life. He started running and in 2002 he ran his first race at the age of 51 years old. From that time he has participated in over 200 marathons all around the world. He participated in a race here in Greece ,which organized very year, called “Spartathlon” three times:2017 at the age of 66 years old, 2018 at the age of 67 yeaars old, 2019 at the age of 68 years old. Unfortunately, he didin’t manage to finish the “Spartathlon” in 2018. Recently, he starred in a spot of the company”NN hellas” showing us his everyday life and generally telling us the real meaning of life via athletics. This video is very touching because it shows us the story of a man who was obese at first and then he took a radical decision: to start running and quit smoking. Sir Dimitris Chronis is the best instance for everyone and especially those who smoke!!!
