Stuff About Me:

Bruce Van Horn's personal motto is "Life is a marathon, so let's train for it!" Bruce lives in Richmond, Virginia, where he is a Dad to two boys, a business owner, life coach, author, blogger, motivational speaker, cancer survivor, host of the "Life Is A Marathon" podcast, and a marathon runner. In 2005, he was overweight, out of shape, and generally unhappy with his life after having suffered many personal and business hardships. That Fall, his older brother came to town to run the Richmond Marathon. He challenged Bruce to give it a try and Bruce accepted the challenge. Marathon training, specifically the mental conditioning needed to train for and run a marathon, completely transformed Bruce's life. Through training for his first marathon, Bruce discovered the power of thoughts and realized his unhappiness with life was more the result of negative thoughts and limiting beliefs than it was his circumstances. He set out to train not just for a 26.2 mile race, but to train for the marathon of Life!

Through this transformation, Bruce rediscovered his passion for life and uses his personal story of transformation and overcoming hardships to inspire, teach, and empower thousands of people around the world, every day, to do the same in their own lives.

Running the Boston Marathon has been one of Bruce’s “bucket list” goals and he is thrilled to be a part of the Forsyth #Miles4Smiles Boston Marathon Team, and to partner with them in their work of changing people's lives.
