VCU fan's lifestyle change led to half-marathon

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Chris Crowley weighed 350 pounds, but when he hit his 30th birthday in February of 2013, he knew he had to make a change.

Chris, known as "Pav"(short for Pavarotti, a testament to his singing voice) around the VCU community and beyond, started working out with Seal Team PT. He got on a workout program, and while it wasn't always easy, stuck with it and started to see changes. Part of the biggest thing for Pav was having a group of people to cheer him on and pick him up when things got tough.

Pav has worked hard for more than 20 months. He's lost 80 pounds and ran the Richmond Half-Marathon yesterday, clocking 2:55:46. For the complete story on Pav's training experience, click on the above video.
