Whit Mattson (or Dr. W as he now makes us call him) has struggled with weight all his life. That all changed thanks to Zombie's Run Couch to 5K, tracking and limiting his calories, and developing a lactose intolerance. Over the course of a year and a half, Whit lost over 100 lbs and trained and ran in a marathon. For a while Whit was also going for his vegan superpowers, but has now settled for being a mostly vegan side-kick. When he's not running away from virtual zombies or running D&D campaigns, he is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan.
