This is Steve Bell. Steve Bell has cystic fibrosis, a disease that causes a sticky mucus to build up in the lungs.
But despte it all, Bell runs. Even a daily, hour-long process with a machine called The Vest -- coupled with upwards of 70 pills a day -- hasn't stopped him from running marathons.
I run because I enjoy it. ... I run because I can.
Running marathons ... puts me in my happy place.
Bell's story is part of Dick's Sporting Goods Run For campaign, "true stories of triumph, loss, friendship, redemption, and the simple love of running."
