In conjunction with e-textbook site CafeScribe.com, Andre Ditto, a personal trainer and vegan, will be running the fabled footrace with an extra load 30-pounds of textbooks!
But Ditto, whos already run the New York race four times, isnt worried about the big bag of books.
Ten years ago, Ditto dropped 100-pounds, and he says, Im not worried. I used to be much heavier, so Im used to carrying around extra weight. And the vegan part is an enhancement meat and dairy weigh you down.
And while CafeScribe will pay for his daughters college textbooks if he crosses the finish line, Ditto isnt feeling the pressure of the pages and he definitely isnt cheating.
He says, I guess I could drop some of the books, but I dont plan on it. Im just visualizing the whole race and seeing myself at the finish line.
