Special Olympics Volunteer Shares Zeal for Distance Running, But It’s His Fire-Walking Experience That Fuels His Passion for Transforming Lives

Boulder Coaching Academy Helps Special Olympians achieve BolderBOULDER 10K Dreams

Boulder, CO – May 2, 2006 Scott Armstrong, personal success coach and marathon runner, “walks his talk.” Or rather, he runs it. That’s why the president and founder of Boulder Coaching Academy volunteered to be a pacer for Boulder’s Special Olympics program, training local kids for the upcoming Celestial Seasonings 28th Memorial Day BolderBOULDER 10K Race.

“If you really want to make major improvements in your life, you need someone to help you get moving forward, and to show you what to do to get better results than you’re getting right now. It’s an absolute must!” says Armstrong. “I’m delighted to share both my love of running and my recognition of the importance of constantly pushing one’s limits with these Special Olympians. Their racing success will be life altering.”

His first Boston Marathon was a big achievement, but Armstrong’s most influential and life-changing experience was fire-walking at an Anthony Robbins seminar. “Once I used my mind to overcome my fears and walk across 20 feet of hot coals, I knew I had to share this knowledge,” he says. The walk raised his “mental game” to a new level, and inspired a new career: success coach. Since then, Armstrong has helped people from the four corners of the world.

Armstrong, president of Boulder Coaching Academy, recently penned the book, ” Boston Marathon Or Bust: How to Achieve Your Dreams,” which uses the metaphor of his preparation to compete in – and successfully complete – the 100th running of the Boston Marathon. It’s a must read for the steps one takes to turn a dream into a goal – and then into a reality.

To help support the Special Olympics program, while simultaneously sharing how he used goal-setting techniques to achieve his dream of running in the Boston Marathon, Armstrong is donating 25% of all proceeds from the sale of his book to Special Olympics.
