A Run in My Shoes: Lamarr tells his story in 100 Words

Lamarr, a longtime member of the RunningWorks family, was featured in this year’s 100 Words Film Festival

The annual festival celebrates concise, cinematic storytelling as each film must deliver a compelling tale using exactly 100 words. Organizers say that is just enough words to tell a story, However, some filmmakers say it can be challenging – especially when telling the story of someone as dynamic as Lamarr.

His big personality comes shining through within the first five seconds of his short, less than two-minute film. His first ten words: “I’m going to tell you right now, I was lazy as hell!”

In 100 words, Lamarr goes on to share how he went from being content just sitting at home watching episodes of “Maury Povich” to being motivated to accomplish life goals such as finding a job and successfully losing over 60 pounds.  Lamarr once thought running was “outlandish.” He now has one full marathon, several half marathons, and many 5ks under his belt with the RunningWorks team.
