Richard Dickerman

Richard never was a runner or active until he was almost 58 when Brotherhood Mutual Insurance teamed up with FWSW to offer a modified version of the Smallest Winner program.  At the beginning of the program he could not even run one third of a mile.  Through the program and beyond Richard lost his goal of 90 pounds and took on a love for running.  At the age of 60 he has now run 6 half marathons, 2 marathons, and a 50K winter trail race.  His seeks ways to keep challenging himself with running to see what he can really do.  While he has grown in his love for running, his greater desire is to use his running to benefit others.  He enjoys running for causes (like Indiana Run For The Fallen) as well as working with others encouraging them in their running growth.  He looks forward to helping Season 10 contestants prepare for their half marathon and seeing them celebrate their accomplishment as they cross the finish line.
