Mark Howard is a devoted husband, father of three young children, and educator at Salem High School. All of which are roles that likely keep him very busy in general. On top of those accomplishments, he can also call himself an Ironman as he has completed one full 141-mile Ironman competition. He is a marathon runner as he has three full 26.2-mile marathons under his belt along with a host of half marathons (13.1 miles) and various 5k/10k races.
This wasn’t always Mark’s lifestyle though. He has accomplished those feats in just three short years. In 2020 he weighed in at 250 pounds and couldn’t even run a mile. He came to the realization that if he didn’t make some serious changes, he wasn’t going to be around to watch his children grow up. Mark made a choice and a commitment to change his life.
