174 – Conor Sullivan USAF Veteran – Ultra Marathoner

Conor Sullivan was a guest on Oscar Mike Radio for #150 (https://whoobazoo.com/oscarmike/2019/05/31/150-usaf-veteran-conor-sullivan/). Conor served in the US Air Force working on the Hercules C-130 airplane.

During his service, Conor discovered that there was a serious issue with his heart and he would need a transplant. After his transplant, Conor had a goal to run a marathon. Earlier this year Conor completed the Boston Marathon becoming one of few heart transplant recipients to do accomplish this feat.

Not satisfied with a 26.2 marathon, Conor started training for ultra marathons. Most ultra marathons are over 31 miles, so it is was impressive that Conor wanted train and compete.

I met Conor at Article XV Brewery (https://articlefifteenbrewing.com/) in Weymouth, MA. Conor was doing a fund raiser for the Travis Mills Foundation. Conor had met Travis and it was great getting to hear about his experience and meet Conor’s family.

Watch this space for more updates on Conor’s goals. As of this writing, he succeeded in running an ultra marathon. Watching Conor, take something that changed his life and turn into a positive force for good is simply amazing. Especially since I do not like to run at all! Proud of you Conor!
