About Scott O. Morton
Scott Morton is a blogger and a #1 International Amazon best-selling author. Scott didn't start running long distances until the age of 43. While playing indoor soccer in his forties, he discovered that he had more running endurance than other players his age.
While on a trip to Las Vegas he read an article about running a half marathon down the Strip in Las Vegas. He focused his efforts on training to be able to run down the Vegas Strip in November of that year. Due to conflicts with scheduling, he did not run the half marathon in Las Vegas. Instead, he ran an extremely hilly local half marathon and placed 2nd in his age group.

- NASM CPT (Certified Personal Trainer).
- NASM CNC (Certified Nutrition Coach)

He enjoys being a father of 3 and snowboarding in the winter. He has since completed 34 5Ks, four 10Ks, one 15K (trail run with 1,000 feet elevation gain), 17 half marathons, and 1 marathon. Scott has placed both 1st and 2nd in his age group for four of his half-marathon races. After running his first marathon, he realized that running was now his passion and wanted to help other runners achieve similar goals.
