Default 100 pound+ weight losers who run marathons

I'm trying to put together a list of websites of people who have lost over 100 lbs and RUN marathons.

So far its not much of a list, just myself and 2 others. Can anyone point me to any sites that you know of?

Here's what I have so far:

http://www.perrymonaco.com/
Perry lost 100 pounds and has finished 3 marathons (6:01 / 6:19 / 6:37)

http://www.msteechur.com/
Tory lost 107 pounds and has finished 3 marathons (4:47 / 5:05 / 5:56)

http://bostondiet.blogspot.com/
Mike (me) has lost 120 pounds and has completed 1 marathon (3:49) along the way. (But I still haven't finished a marathon since I passed 100 pounds weight loss).

Fingers crossed I'll be joining your list at some point, although I want to get my half out of the way before thinking about the full version

Its a great goal to shoot for Helen. It really gives a higher purpose to saying no to junk food when you are training for a marathon. My races motivate me so much more than my health or my appearance ever could.

Here's another website I found:

http://www.kensweightloss.com/
Ken went from 405 pounds to 235 pounds, and finished the 2005 Chicago marathon (4:17)
