Operator to train in CNN’s Fit Nation program this year

| January 28, 2012

“I was on my way back to Texas and didn’t have a webcam,” says Roadrunner Transportation Services contractor Glenn Keller about the circumstances in which he filmed what has become a winning entry to take part in CNN’s 2012 Fit Nation Triathlon Challenge. “I pulled off the interstate, went into a Walmart and bought what I figured would be my last bucket of chicken wings and a webcam. I sat there in the seat of my truck and just tried to speak from my heart.”

The 51-year-old operator, here pictured, now begins a journey toward losing weight and getting fit enough to compete as part of CNN’s team, alongside Dr. Sanjay Gupta and six teammates, at the 2012 Nautica Malibu Triathlon. Keller estimates he could lose up to 100 pounds or more to get his weight to an ideal state.

Keller’s not the only driver working this year toward getting fit. Check out the debut of Truckers News’ “Go for the Goal” feature series and health program in the January issue here.
