Watch Jason Run H9.
Hi, I’m Jason Green.
Skating, boating, and running
In my teens and into my 20s, I chased my dreams and pursued happiness in whitewater boating and skateboarding. He traveled the country running big rivers and steep creeks. On the bank of a river out west someone gave him a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. As has with all passions , they tug at your soul until you get up and do something about it. Beer became a passion. Jason packed up and moved to Atlanta to help a fledgling alcohol distributor grow and promote family owned breweries and distilleries.
The doctor finally came in to see me. I asked. ‘Do you think I can run 50 miles ? How do you quit smoking?’. The doctor said, “if you wanna stop smoking, just stop. As for running 50 miles, it would take a dedicated athlete to do such a feat.” On the way home I stopped bought a pair of running shorts and shoes, changed into them and took off out the door. Everything came to a screeching halt as I bent over, dry heaving from exhaustion. The next day, I made it a mile before I was walking home with my head down.
